'TASHA by Yusef Miller
Inspired by Socrates' ANTIGONE, 'TASHA is set in a modern republic where White Nationalists are occupying the government. Black communities are under martial law. Newly elected President Waters rules that from henceforth all who defy the police are criminals and will remain unburied should they be killed. Natasha Brown, 18, obeying the dictate of familial loyalty and laws of morality buries her cousin 'Big Randy', killed unjustly. Face to face, President Waters and 'TASHA recognize an old foe - prophecy - both are slaves to a movement that neither can escape. 'TASHA addresses the question, "Is the criminalization of Brown people irreversible?"
