DACAMERA Presents World Premiere of Kendrick Scott’s “Unearthed”

Join DACAMERA for a new, world premiere production memorializing the Sugar Land 95. Unearthed pays tribute to the tragic history behind the recent discovery of the remains of 95 Black people in unmarked graves in Sugar Land, Texas. They were convict laborers, swept back into “slavery by another name” in the post-Civil War era, arrested for petty crimes like vagrancy and forced into back-breaking and often fatal labor in the sugar fields of Texas. Now, Houston-native jazz artist Kendrick Scott explores this untold story in a new production.
