After releasing a number of songs as a national recording artist and working with Tyler Perry on Madea Goes to Jail, Chad Lawson Cooper turned to theater for a project that combines passion, education and an emotional quest for slavery reparation in Justice on Trial: Black Lives Matter Too. Cooper’s Broadway production company presents a civil rights courtroom drama in which Medgar Evers, Emmett Till and Harriet Tubman all take the stand to tell their personal stories.

Friday, December 8. 7pm, $44-60. MLK Performing Arts Center, 1400 Melbourne Rd. (917) 322-9821.
