MoAD and The Lorraine Hansberry Theater present a reading of THE DePRIEST INCIDENT by Charles White.

Set in 1929, The DePriest Incident dramatizes an underexplored event in African American political history. Oscar DePriest, an outspoken civil rights advocate, has just been elected to represent Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives—the first Black person to do so in the 20th century.
