“Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world”...”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.
Phillip Oliver Coleman was a successful young black man living in the city of Chicago, whose life initiative was to educate African Americans on hospice care and mental health. Did you know that African Americans have one of the highest rates of mental illness in the country, yet they are least likely to seek therapy?
Phillip Coleman knew the struggles of this crippling illness firsthand. He himself dealt with this disease on a day to day basis until it finally became too much. He lost it. His psyche shattered and his mother unwittingly received the backlash.
How much more can one man endure? Another black man that needed mental help but was let down by the very system that his father took an oath with to serve and protect.
Nowadays, the blue comes before the black and the badge before the bond.
This performance is recommended for ages 16 and up.
Tickets: $35 General; $20 Students; $45 Premium Seating (Rows A-H)
