G.O.D. tells the story of two college students who are fed up with the injustices facing today’s generation. These students come together in hopes of getting others involved to fight these problems of racial and social inequalities. In the process of doing this, they realize they come from a generation of people who are quick to complain but at times, slow to take action.
The play highlights historical leaders of the past such as Fred Hampton, Huey P. Newton and Angela Davis. These students look to these leaders of their past for inspiration as a way to restructure their current and future situations. During the twists and turns of this story, our main characters strive to keep their dreams alive and live with passion no matter the obstacles that come their way.
