David Shakelford Playwrights' a Racial Tragedy || The Positive Identity Podcast
Show Notes

David Shakelford has a story to tell about injustice. Except that this injustice took place before cameras and the internet were a thing. So how do you bring to life a story, about a military mission and exercise that went wrong, killed many soldiers, many soldiers of color, when there wasn't anything around to record it? For David... it was to recreate this world so people could see it with their own eyes.

For Ron and Stephen, focusing on the injustices of the past, and ultimately learning from them is the great question they are trying to figure out. How can we look back to allow us to understand how to go forward. In this podcast episode, they see how people like David are doing just that. Then ultimately they both learn from David's play what they can do for real to make sure that injustice never happens again.

"Positive Identity: It's another week where we tell you inspiring and positive stories of people of different races doing good things for each other and the world. Then from there, we become better people and learn more how to make the world better for everyone."
