The Every 28 Hours PlaysA collection of 76 one-minute plays, by a diverse range of playwrights, responding to the crisis of state-sanctioned violence against Black people and all people of color in the United States of America. It is produced nationally by Calling-up Productions and Claudia Alick. https://www.every28hoursplays.org/
