Chapmyn. This free event is open to the public, and it will be held at 7 p.m. in the UTC University Center Auditorium. Our Young Black Men are Dying and Nobody Seems to Care is a non-confrontational play that depicts the choices facing African American males today. It seeks to give purpose and mission to the needless slaughter of young people by telling their whole stories and showing them a way out or any crisis. After the show, there will be a brief discussion with the women from the cast. The session ends with a poetry selection that captures the theme of the evening.
