Co-written by Jireh Breon Holder
A clownish captain and his crew of misfits board a clunky spaceship in search of a new home. A band of southern slaves summons the spirits of their ancestors before a deadly insurrection. A substitute teacher struggles to explain the Holocaust to a roomful of restless Black teenagers. Shifting fluidly among past, present, and future, Some Bodies Travel confronts the dark history of racial oppression and reimagines the future of Black people in America.
