Torch presents Baba & Me: A Young Man in Search of His Father
Robert D. Jackson will be premiering his autobiographical one-man show, Baba & Me: A Young Man in Search of His Father. Jackson’s father, Big Rue, was a member of the DJ Screw Collective: Screwed Up Click and lost his life to gun violence in January 1999. 20 years later, his son, continues his father’s legacy with a hip hop musical performance incorporating heightened language and poetry. In addition to the one-man show, Jackson will be hosting a community event for community leaders, students, and politicians to share their thoughts on gun violence in Houston. Jackson has performed several iterations of this show in New York City, Los Angeles, and Johannesburg.
