The Blood they Shed is a Broadway style, one man show written by NAACP award winning playwright, Aaron White. It is a journey that combines both a story telling narrative with sublime poetry. The story is told from the perspective of a young boy raised in the ghetto on his way to becoming a man in the big city. The journey through his upbringing is an emotional one that makes you laugh, cry and reflect at the hard truths facing people of all races in today's world. The powerful tale reminds us of the trail that was blazed by our forefathers with the hopes they had in making a way for future generations to succeed.
