    When a black student disrupts the status quo at her high school by occupying space typically reserved for white students, her community erupts in hate speech, violence and chaos. Inspired by a series of incidents media reporting and social action in Jena Louisiana in 2007, Dominique Morisseau’s play scrutinizes the intrinsic links between justice, bias and identity. Moving, lyrical and bold, "Blood at the Root" probes the complexities of race, individual freedoms and what justice means when biases have been normalized.
