BLACK AND BLUE,
an original play

BLACK AND BLUE, an original play, was created on commission from The Yvonne Bechet Theatre Project (now The Black and Blue Story Project) in 2016. Inspired by the life and career of Yvonne Bechet, one of New Orleans' first Black female police officers, BLACK AND BLUE explores the question of how we can learn from her legacy in order to transform policing. Ariadne Blayde wrote the script based on extensive research and interviews. BLACK AND BLUE premiered at Dillard University in 2018.
