Welcome to the Blood at the Root Study Guide. This guide is meant as an open-source series of gateways into learning about the play, the themes it addresses (racism, white supremacy, police misconduct, criminal justice, and others,) and the context for all of this within United States culture.
It is not necessarily a comprehensive resource list, but rather an online community site to engage with ideas, materials, and other people. We will be adding to the site throughout the semester as we lead up to the premiere of Blood at the Root in early November, 2020. Please let us know if there is something you'd like to see here that is missing, or something you'd like to add. We look forward to connecting with you through this study guide.

These are photos of Black Artists, Activists, Teachers, and Leaders, gathered to be part of the "Healing the Trauma of Racism Altar" project. This project is a collaboration between the departments of Social Work and Theatre & Dance. We invite creative use of these photos in class assignments.
