Ever have one of those dreams where nothing comes out when you try to scream? In 1998 a 19-year-old African American young woman was shot to death by four police officers in Riverside, California – while passed out in her car. Through poetry, dance, and beat boxing, actors Rhaechyl Walker and John “Faahz” Merchant explore the life of Myeisha Mills (Tyisha Miller) and re-frame her death by following the trajectory and impact of the 12 bullets that struck her – each one triggering its own unique memory. Co-sponsored by the Black Performance Series; the Black Studies Department; the Center for Black Studies Research; and the Department of Theater and Dance.
