Many Fires This Time: We the 100 Million is a poetic docudrama about the 1 in 3 Americans and counting, living in economic insecurity. It follows the journey of poet and activist A Scribe Called Quess? as he connects with fellow activist poets and the communities they represent from Oakland to Chicago to Kentucky to his hometown of New Orleans. Along the way, we glimpse into the worlds of everyday people fighting for equity and justice in issues ranging from housing and gentrification to police violence, to environmental crises and job security, to education, to LGBTQIA equality. In the spirit of the impending fire that James Baldwin prophetically spoke of in this country’s last season of a major uprising, “Many Fires” employs spoken word poetry, choreography, and community interviews, to form a poetic love letter to the many revolutionary struggles aflame in today’s America.
