Idris Goodwin's monologue is broken into three parts, each a poetic exploration of his perspective as a black man in Iowa City. The first retells his fear of being outside his home at midnight, the second shifts to how members of the white community react to his art as a black man, and the third paints a portrait of black men being gunned down and metaphorically hunted from a passing train.

REVIEWS 

“[A] stirring and often raw compilation. – Broad Street ReviewRead More

“These short monologues chronicle each author's encounters with the daily indecencies of racial profiling, stop-and-frisk, harassment, and casual racism inflicted by police, media, and society in general…each author delivers a brutally honest telling of their own experience.” – Philly.com, Read More

Hands Up received its world premiere at Flashpoint Theatre Company at the University of the Arts on June 13, 2015, directed by Joanna Settle.
