New York City
“DEMETER is old enough to die wise. She is Black, her hair as silver as a rainbow trout and her skin just as smooth. She is built like a good man, one whose been fighting all her life. She even walks like a good man, women notice her. Men pretend not to. She wears a tattered petticoat, ripped slacks and a cold, black fedora. She talks softly and with a North Carolina ‘gentile.’ Perhaps, a man should play here. DAMASCUS is her former being.”
…and Jesus moonwalks the Mississippi is written by Marcus Gardley.
