brownsville song (b-side for tray)


Life in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn can feel predictable, and inevitable, but Tray has a way out. Then, when a senseless act of violence cuts his life short, his family must confront their grief and find a way to move forward. Kimber Lee’s hopeful drama shifts between memory and reality, and bids that we examine the personal pain beyond the headlines.

Praise for brownsville song (b-side for tray):

“Ms. Lee’s language is vivid and rhythmic…[and] it argues persuasively against treating the next neighborhood death as just one more sad statistic.” – The New York Times
