On August 9, 2014 a white police officer shot and killed Michael Brown, an African American teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Darren Brown’s shooting ignited weeks of social unrest, propelled by the activist movement known as Black Lives Matter, and prompted a controversial investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Dael Orlandersmith conducted interviews with dozens of people who were shaken by the shooting and its turbulent aftermath. From these intimate conversations, she has created eight unforgettable characters who embody a community struggling to come to terms with the personal damage caused by these complex events.

Until The Flood explores the dark forces of American history, race and politics that exploded in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri and sent shock waves across the nation.
