Ujima Theater’s Hit Devised Theater Play “Free Fred Brown!” will be performed at East High School (820 Northampton St., Buffalo) on Wednesday December 6th at 6:30PM.
Free Fred Brown! is a devised theatre piece about a young black man who becomes the reluctant face of a movement while in prison for “theft of services” from the National Gas Company. Fred is from Uptown - a frontline community at the epicenter of economic, racial, and climate justice in a rust-belt city identical to Buffalo, NY. When a surprise snow storm wreaks havoc on the region, Uptown suffers most and demands explanations. What happened? Who is responsible? And how do we make sure it doesn't happen again?
