EAST ORANGE, NJ - The Cicely Tyson School of Performing Arts is hosting an interesting and dramatic event Saturday entitled, ‘Uniform Justice”. 

Uniform Justice is an enactment of confrontations between police and civilians: even demonstrating the limitation of camera phones to adequately capture every aspect of an incident. 

Given the current climate of police/community relations in our towns, as well as the pro, ‘Black Lives Matter’ sentiment, this dramatic presentation is bound to evoke strong emotions. It tells the story of an urban neighborhood (not unlike EO) where community members and police search for solutions to rampart violence afflicting their streets and the conflicts and suspicions dividing them. The drama primarily focuses on three childhood friends reevaluating their bond when one becomes a cop.

This event was held in Montclair last year with raving reviews. The intention of this project is to enlighten the community about the multiplicity of issues that arise when one takes into consideration personal relationships, effective policing, systemic racism and justice. 

The presentation is at the Cicely Tyson High School Second Stage Theatre, 35 Winans Street, East Orange beginning at 10:00 am.
