Hands Up is a powerful set of monologues commissioned by The New Black Fest in the wake of police shootings of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Mo., John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, and others.

Come witness the testaments on October 19th-21st at Wayfinding Academy. Seating is general admission. Doors open at 7 pm, show begins at 7:30 pm.

Suggested donation per ticket: $20. Art should be accessible to all, therefore tickets are pay-what-you-can. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Tickets available now! We would like to especially thank our community partners, Wayfinding Academy and Get Up, Give Back.
