Chicago playwright/actress Nambi E. Kelley’s newest play tells the story of Jabari, a 10-year-old boy who lives in his south side Chicago home with a family he adores. Although Jabari spends hours inside painting trains, trees and flowers, the world outside is filled with pictures that make him sad and afraid to leave his house. But when his paintings come to life, they take Jabari on a journey through the Civil Rights era’s past, where he finds the courage to better face the future.
