Racial profiling - redefined.

In Colonial America, the third crossing of black and white bloodlines was believed to yield white children. The relationship between Thomas Jefferson and his slave Sally Hemings - whose children were the third crossing but remained slaves - is the springboard for examining interracial relationships in America. Join us for the latest work from the author of 2008's sold-out run of THE END OF THE HORIZON and co-author of 2010's sold-out run of WALLACE.

Featuring Carleton Bluford (Actor #4), Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin (Actor #1), David Fetzer (Actor #6), Deena Marie Manzanares (Actor #5), Bob Nelson (Actor #2 - Thomas Jefferson) and Kalyn West (Actor #3 - Sally Hemings).

Directed by Jerry Rapier.  Stage Managed by Jennifer Freed.

Designed by Cheryl Ann Cluff (Sound), Phllip R. Lowe (Costumes), Jesse Portillo (Lighting), Jerry Rapier (Props) and Randy Rasmussen (Set).
