ONE VOICE: A BLACK HISTORY NARRATIVE starring Jeremiah Dew
One Voice: A Black History Narrative is a journey through the black American experience, through 7 voices. Jeremiah Dew portrays six of the characters, all real figures in this country’s history. The span of the show is from the late 1820s through 2008. The show is divided into seven chapters, and covers various genres. Captivating and emotionally charged video is used to tie the chapters and voices together, and one chapter is an interview with a 95-year old South Carolinian, who talks of some of his remembrances from days gone by. Throughout the narrative, audiences will see a timeline of struggle and heartache, to breakthrough and achievement of the black American male voice, and will leave them with a powerful performance from obscure histories to familiar rhetoric.
“I hope what the audience gets is a sense of the accomplishments of the black American and the history of our country, really,” Dew says. “The hopes people have in common have nothing to do with your skin color or your race. We all want to live in a free society. We all want to live in a place where we’re judged by the content of our character.” - Jeremiah Dew, Metromix 2011
