Hello Voices listeners,

Happy to be back for a hopeful new year — less Trump, more Biden, and a lot more BLACK/LATINX/THIRD WORLD REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENT BUILDING!

Towards that end, we present, and re-present Too Black to Fail—a radio play, future theater script, and screenplay in Magical Realism of revolutionary hope and possibility—written by Eric Mann.


Starring Toussaint L’Ouverture, Vo Nguyen Giap, Fannie Lou Hamer, Gil Scott-Heron, Emmett Till, and a cast of millions led by the Army of Underwater Revolutionaries, the 15 million enslaved Africans, who came back to help lead the revolution against the U.S. imperialist white settler state, along with the Black Communist Rebellion, from The Man in the High Castle.

Performed by Kiyana Williams, Channing Martinez, Barbara Lott-Holland, Brigette Amaya, and Eric Mann.

After listening, and becoming mesmerized and transfixed, please send comments and suggestions for performances to
