Ishmael Reed's The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda
Ishmael Reed, poet, essayist, playwright, whose satirical works challenge America political culture. His book Mumbo Jumbo has been described as one of the 500 most important books in the Western canon
Rome Neal " Artistic theater director of the Nuyorican Caf in NYC
And Gerald Horne, Prof. of History and African-American studies at the
University of Houston and one of the most prolific radical historians writing today whose books include The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the USA

Ishmael Reed's The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda, is a new play directed by Rome Neal..-J Jesse Bueno says "I read the play several times and I think that it is a solid response to anyone who may have glossed over some truths about not just Alexander Hamilton, but most of our founding fathers as well. The play on the whole is a great read. " and according toTom Angelo "It's a scathing rebuke to the mystifying deification of Alexander Hamilton in Lin Manuel-Miranda's musical"

Some students in Puerto Rico protested "Hamilton."Lin-Manuel, our lives are not your theater, read one of their handmade signs.The only artists and people that benefit from Hamilton are the elite, white North American settlers, the rich bourgeoise and those who actively participate and aspire to become oppressors, said Ruth Figueroa, a student of comparative literature and one of the protesters. As a Latin person, he should be more conscious of who Hamilton was " hes glorifying a person that represents oppression, she said. -New York Times, Dec 30, 2018
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash
