The Blackest Battle

Performance Dates

It’s the Fourth of July in the not too distant future. Reparations have been paid to the African-Americans of Chief County—yet Black on Black violence rains down like a fiery storm. In this revolutionary hip-hop musical, Bliss and Dream, members of warring rap factions, fall in love while wrestling with making sense of their turbulent lives. Written by acclaimed DC theatre artist Psalmayene 24 and brought to life by an innovative team of illustrators and performers, our digital production of The Blackest Battle fuses the known and the new for an entirely original spin on urban conflict.
