The Hunting Season - an Original Play
St. Francis College Communication Arts Professor Magaly Christopher-Colimon presented the, The Hunting Season, a staged reading & panel discussion on police profiling in America.
Written & Directed by Magaly Colimon-Christopher, The Hunting Season follows a Haitian family struggle to protect a son from their perceptions of the dangers of being a man of Haitian descent in America. They discover the dangers are even more widespread for Black Men and that it takes more than one being to make America safe for all.
The Hunting Season was performed October 5 and 6, 2016.
A panel discussion hosted by Ebony Noelle Golden (founder of Betty's Daughter Arts Collaborative) followed the first performance. The panel discussion focused on race, accountability, the power of art to promote discourse and political activism, and the current period of intensified "racialized" police brutality in America.
