God’s Suicide by Harmony Holiday
Made in L.A. artist Harmony Holiday’s one-man play, God’s Suicide, takes Black male vulnerability as its central subject. Adapted from an essay by the artist and constructed around the rarely acknowledged five suicide attempts of writer and public intellectual James Baldwin, this deeply personal work examines the interplay between creative and destructive forces in societies infected with white supremacy. In this special presentation, actor Larry Powell portrays Baldwin.
