A Lesson for Our Times

“I want you to show them the difference between what they think you are and what you can be.”
Jefferson, an African-American young man is condemned to death in a small-town Louisiana for a murder he didn't commit. His godmother persuades a teacher to visit Jefferson and teach him to die with dignity as a man. Many lessons are learned in this powerful drama on the value of human life adapted by Romulus Linney from Ernest J. Gaines’ celebrated novel.
Opens March 4 and runs until March 13
