Question preconceptions: Prejudice, racial injustice influence change in PSU’s ‘Blood at the Root’

Blood at the Root” is an explosive new drama that explores the escalation of racial tensions when a student challenges the status quo at an integrated but racially segregated high school in the conservatively charged South. The drama focuses on six black Louisiana teens convicted of beating a white student after a noose was found hanging from a tree and addresses propaganda, individual freedoms and racial inequality in the judicial system.
