Born Of Conviction

Born Of Conviction

Shifting between a woman's childhood memories of Mississippi in 1963 and her pressure-packed life in the present day, Born of Conviction asks, "Do you stay to confront social injustice, or do you leave to save your family?" Kelly doesn't know whether she's coming or going: she's grieving over her father's death, a white Mississippi minister; raising a New York City teenage daughter fomenting rebellion; and battling her african American boyfriend, who's only trying to give her the love she doesn't feel she deserves. Maybe that's why ghosts from her Southern Civil Rights Era past suddenly start haunting her. The playwright draws from documentary and biographical material for her latest play including the Born of Conviction statement signed in 1963 by 28 white Methodist ministers (including her own father) of the Mississippi Southern Methodist Conference. The statement opposed discrimination, Communism, and the closing of public schools to establish private academies using state funds.
