Event Description


Join Kelly McEvers, host of the NPR podcast, Embedded, for an evening of live storytelling, audience participation, and conversation about police videos. These are the grainy body-cam and dash-cam videos we keep seeing in the news. McEvers and crew will tell the story of Jonathan Ferrell, an unarmed black man who was shot by police in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2013. The audience will serve as a mock jury, and McEvers will invite civil rights activist and lawyer Connie Rice to the stage for a conversation after the story.

Valet Parking available: $12.

Trigger warning: our show will feature a dash-cam video from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department, the night of Jonathan Ferrell’s shooting. Gunshots can be heard.
