 Show contains strong language, racial slurs, and some violence.

A world-premiere adaptation of a novel by T. Geronimo Johnson, Welcome to Braggsville is an astonishing, razor-sharp satire of contemporary American issues following a college student whose personal tragedy becomes the center of a national media storm. With a sincere heart, this coming-of-age novel for a new generation intimately explores how all Americans are linked to — and culpable in — the country’s racial injustices.
