Where do great social movements or revolutions begin? In FATE COMES KNOCKING, playwright/director Ricardo Pitts-Wiley suggests that in America they begin on porches where communities of people gather. They come together, often around mundane activities like shelling peas, to discuss family life and the events of the day. From the porches of America, its people see history unfold and choose either to become a part of it or an observer. No matter which role they took, the people on the porches were united by an invisible bond that had the power to shape or destroy great nations.
FATE COMES KNOCKING is the story of the hundreds of thousands of men and women who would provide the fuel for the engine that drove the American Civil Rights Movement. Together, they would move a nation closer to its creed and set an example for the world to follow. They would support leaders and heroes who would become icons like Martin Luther King and Fannie Lou Hamer. They would witness assassinations, hippies, Black militants, and anti-war protests.
The conversations on those porches were also a search for balance. The most dramatic search for balance would be along racial lines, but ultimately redefined the roles of men and women, the young and old, rich and poor.
The cast of FATE COMES KNOCKING includeS Jeannie Carson, Jay Walker, Jomo Peters, Jaquan Stanley, and Charmaine Gray.
