Never Again

Written and Directed by Yunina Barbour-Payne
Original Music by Werner Richmond and Lyrics Yunina Barbour-Payne

It’s spring semester and the students in Mr. Washington’s history class are taking notes to plot a revolution. Set in an urban high school filled with young people fed up with violence in their communities, NEVER AGAIN raises the voices of five student activists. At the height of school shootings plaguing schools across the nation, Mr. Washington’s students must confront issues of violence head on. When the need for activism comes too close for comfort, which students will emerge as activists, witnesses, victims or survivors?
