Summary

Summary

This hard hitting and intense drama, a sensation Off Broadway, is based on a murder that happened in a small town in Florida in 1952. Ruby McCollum, a black woman, is accused of killing a socially prominent white doctor. Famed writer Zora Neale Hurston is covering her trial for the national black press. With help from another famous reporter, Zora uncovers an explosive collision of race, sex and class that is key to understanding the truth about the murder.
