A Black man's unrequited
love letter to America.
Prospect Theater Company presents
a new music video
premiering August 14, 2020
on Prospect's YouTube Channel
Nearly ten years ago, songwriting duo Charles and Christopher Inniss, also known as InnissENT, wrote a breakup song. An ode to lost love, “The Answer” sat on the shelf for years, waiting for the right time to be released. Today, their personal love song is about something much larger: the unrequited love of Black Americans for their country.
In collaboration with award-winning choreographer Kristen Brooks Sandler, InnissENT created a socially-distanced music video spotlighting 7 dancers of color, with movement inspired by activism: Sign, Donate, Protest, Petition.
