It features Ol’ Man River and other famous songs, much fiery oratory, and a defiant testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee. One of the highlights of the play is the infamous Peekskill Riots of August and September 1949. The play was written and performed by Nigerian-born, UK-based playwright and singer Tayo Aluko with piano accompaniment by New York pianist Dennis Nelson.
