Lyrics From Lockdown to Open at The Kennedy Center
October 18, 2018 @ 4:00 am - October 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm EDT

Lyrics from Lockdown is a critically acclaimed exposé of the ways race, class, power, and privilege shape prisons and policing in America. It is a story of survival that reveals how the justice system can radically change a young person’s life. In this one-man multimedia production, Bryonn Bain tells his own unbelievable true story by weaving together the voices of more than 40 characters into an extraordinary tour de force developed in prisons nationwide. Performing a fusion of Hip Hop, theater, spoken word, rhythm and blues, comedy, calypso, and classical music, this award-winning show features a live band, professional beat boxer, and video DJ. Presented by the Sankofa.org, Executive Producer Harry Belafonte; written and performed by Bryonn Bain; directed and produced by Gina Belafonte. Each show will be followed by a town hall dialogue.
