ABOUT THE GRANT
- $43,000 to ArtsEmerson to support Detroit Red (MAP 2018)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Detroit Red is a comprehensive exploration into the turbulent, destructive, yet ultimately redemptive life of Malcolm X as he dwelled and came of age in the Roxbury section of Boston and Harlem, NYC. Part devised theater piece, part epic poem, part research-based historical drama, Detroit Red pulls from these various forms and methods to create a theater piece of the highest caliber rooted in the community that formed the iconic figure Malcolm X.
