A special performance of "Free Fred Brown!" will be performed at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Paul Robeson Theatre at the African American Cultural Center, 350 Masten Ave.
The play by Ujima Company, Inc. is about a young African-American who becomes the reluctant face of a movement while in prison for theft of services from a gas company. The story, set in a rust-belt city identical to Buffalo, is a glimpse of the individuals who make their community strong.
The production is part of the Civil Writes Project: A Collaboration with Just Buffalo Literary Center.
Admission is on a "pay as you can" basis. Reservations are suggested and can be made by calling 281-0092.
