THE DePRIEST INCIDENT by Charles White

Reading Lorraine Hansberry Theater presents THE DePRIEST INCIDENT by Charles White

MoAD and The Lorraine Hansberry Theater present a reading of The DePriest Incident by Charles White

Set in 1929, The DePriest Incident dramatizes an underexplored event in African American political history. Oscar DePriest, an outspoken civil rights advocate, has just been elected to represent Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives—the first Black person to do so in the 20th century. He takes a hard line against racism, pushing for anti-lynching legislation and criticizing politicians who submit to Southern pressure.
