Stokely: The Unfinished Revolution


Civil rights activist Kwame Ture, born Stokely Carmichael, was a towering icon; a man of immense domestic and international importance; a man who refused to back down, step aside, or remain silent. But he was also just that: a man. Blending the historical and the personal with astonishing grace, Stokely: The Unfinished Revolution depicts one man’s rise to prominence and the many people who made it possible, posing the question: what does a movement mean to one man, and what does one man mean to a movement?

Tasia A. Jones makes her Court directorial debut with playwright and Prince Prize winner Nambi E. Kelley’s (Native Son) evocative world premiere. Tracing the journey from Stokely Carmichael, the man, to Kwame Ture, the legend, Kelley illuminates the power of imperfection to humanize, and the power of that humanity to change the world.
