Young superhero Shayla the Great comes from a long line of “Greats” who spend every day making their neighborhood a beautiful place to live. But when Shayla discovers that the world seeks to contain the Greatness of people who look like her, she sets out to find the magic paintbrush that will empower her to make a world that is even more just, more free, and more wondrous!
This play for young audiences can serve as a springboard for initiating conversations about community organizing, racial justice and the prison industrial complex.
