Psalmayene24 and Debbie Minter Jackson
Interviewed by Debbie Minter Jackson with Lorraine Treanor
Psalmeyene24 speaks with Debbie Minter Jackson after his performance of Free Jujube Brown. This out-of-Brooklyn, hip hop inspired actor tells how the play, originally commissioned as a two person piece by Jennifer Nelson of African Continuum Theatre, has grown into an acclaimed one man show. In a performance that is both funny and moving, Free Jujube Brown challenges its audiences who may think it’s all about the bling and the hip hop community itself to think again.

I have wanted to produce Psalm and his work ever since I saw the Hip Hop nightmares back at the National Black Theatre festival 9 years ago. He is an incredible writer and physical performer. (Edited at the request of the writer)
