Originally produced fifty years ago, playwright and screenwriter Richard Wesley’s Black Terror returns under the bold direction of Richard Lawson.

This film collaboration illuminates the urgent demands and extreme sacrifices at the center of Black liberation struggles. In Black Terror, an impassioned squad of revolutionaries called the Black Comrades sets out to unshackle their people from oppression. The freedom fighters’ divergent approaches not only threaten their alliance but expose their vulnerabilities. Lawson and Wesley’s production, which extends beyond any one time or place, challenges audiences to consider: What path toward freedom would you take?
