The summer of 2017 has been named by some as "The Summer of Hate." Starting with Charlottesville, VA, violent protests broke out across the country. During that summer, nationally-syndicated radio host and First Coast native, Al Letson, covered a protest in Berkeley, CA for Reveal, the multi-platform medium of The Center for Investigative Reporting, a nonprofit organization founded in 1977. The "Rally Against Hate " brought protestors, counter-protestors, Antifa, right wing agitators, and police face to face. At that rally, Letson saw five masked protestors beating an unarmed man. Using his body as a human shield, Letson protected the man from being seriously injured. When it was all over, Letson was left with questions. Who was the man he protected? Who were the people beating him? How did we, as a country, get here? In this movin, solo performance, Letson follows the story of all the characters involved, the seismic shift in our politics, and the inevitability of now. - Additional performance dates available.
