      The War at Home -- Presented by Run On Productions and East Bay Center for the Performing Arts

      Jesse Thornton has just returned from WWII to face a harsh reality -- he will never taste the freedom he risked his life for abroad. America is the same -- mob lynchings, Jim Crow, separate but unequal, and racial terrorism. Based on the true story of Jesse Thornton, as investigated by the Civil Rights & Restorative Justice Project in Boston, MA the story tells of a black veteran, chicken farm manager who was killed by a white police officer for refusing to call him "Mr." "The War at Home" is a story of black soldiers who fought for freedoms they would never know, the untold sacrifices of black women who were not honored as Rosie the Riveter's, and a country grasping for answers to the: what is democracy in America for the Negro? This is a story about how America lost World War II. "The War at Home" is written and directed by Richmond playwright, Michele Wells founder of Run On Productions: for more about Run On, visit: http://runonproductionsca.com/about-us/ When: September 17th and 19th, 2015 7:30PM Location: East Bay Center for the Performing Arts 339 11th Street Richmond, CA 94801 United States
