AT WAR WITH OURSELVES – 400 YEARS OF YOU

At War With Ourselves – 400 Years of You features a libretto by National Book Award-winning poet Nikky Finney inspired by her 2013 poem “The Battle of and for the Black Face Boy.” The music was composed by Michael Abels, composer for the Jordan Peele films Us and Get Out.
