Written by Trinity Smith and Lablaque Williams, this musical production of “Amandla… Power to Us!”, performed by youth and for youth, delves into the minds of young people in search of social justice and personal truths through dance, music and spoken word, focusing on the events of the 1976 youth uprising in Soweto, South Africa.
