Rasheeda Speaking April 22-June 4
Whether it’s the doctor’s inability to remember her name, or the toxic fumes radiating from the Xerox machine and lab next door, Dr. Williams’ office is not made for Jaclyn. As the only Black woman in the office, Jaclyn is determined to keep her job. But when Dr. Williams promotes her White co-worker, Ileen, and asks her to spy on their only Black co-worker, Jaclyn has her work cut out for her. Fueled by a fear of difference and looming racial uprising, how far will Jaclyn, Ileen and Dr. Williams go? SGT Associate Artistic Director, AmBer D. Montgomery, directs Chicago writer Joel Drake Johnson’s comedy-turned-social thriller about workplace racism. Watch the trailer.

SGT’s Statement On the Events of Jan 6, 2021
Racism and white supremacy have no place in a just society. Shattered Globe condemns the violent insurrection and storming of the Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th in an attempt to discredit and dismantle the basic structures and procedures of democracy in the United States. We cannot be silent in the face of these horrific events. We are committed to raising our voices in opposition to hate in every way we can.
