Spoken word poetry written and performed by LeMarr Jackson & Scott Hofman, about the first instance of legal lifetime slavery in the English colonies. Two escaped indentured servants received very different penalties based on the color of their skin. These two Grand Rapids friends take on the characters of these servants, exploring the questions and feelings that arise from such an unjust outcome.
