On the Corner follows Julian, an African-American teenager, and the white police officer who detains him, as they travel from the Wall Street slave market of 1690, to a Bronx high school in 1978. When they disagree about the meaning of this history, their journey leads them to the heart of our divided America, and the possibility of a new future.
On the Corner has been in development since June 2015 as a group of community volunteers have come together twice a week to investigate the Corner and devise and develop scenes and characters.
Performing in On the Corner are:
Helen T. Clark
Terrell M. Dickson
Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr.*
Nia Nunn-Makepeace &
Dancers of the Community Unity Music Education Program (CUMEP)
Rudy Nuñez on the drum!
