The play Blood at the Root opens this week at the University of Tennessee’s Clarence Brown Theatre. Dominique Morisseau’s 2013 play is inspired by and loosely based on the Jena Six case in Louisiana. WUOT’s Chrissy Keuper spoke with director Tracey Copeland Halter about the play and about how producing it now is different than it might have been only a decade ago.
