ADITL ‘A Day in the Life’by Akpore Uzoh
“Guilty until proven innocent…right?”
Imagine all you hold dear.
Family, friends, your hopes and dreams, your liberty.
Now imagine it all ripped away in an instant.
A new one-man play by Akpore Uzoh, exploring injustice within the justice system through the lens of a young black man wrongfully arrested and the tumultuous journey that ensues following his subsequent conviction. A battle cry in the fight to give a voice to the voiceless.
