Salvage Vanguard Theater presents amendment: the making of an american myth, or the slow sipping of a peacock tea by Taji Senior on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at on Friday 21 August 2020 at 8:30 p.m. CDT (Austin, UTC -5) / 9:30 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4) / 6:30 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles, UTC -7).

Salvage Vanguard Theater presents a new solo work by Taji Senior that examines America’s failed vision of a more perfect union. A portion of the production’s proceeds will go to the African-American Policy Forum & Black Mamas ATX.

We are all witnesses, judge and jury in the trial of Ma’Dear, a pregnant, enslaved woman forced to consider an impossible choice: abandon an opportunity to be more than enslaved, more than mere property or become the matriarch of a lineage bound to what she calls “the lie.” She calls to the stand several witnesses, including Venida and Kalief Browder, Paul Robeson, Fred Hampton and others.
