History Matters: Four Days of Fury: Atlanta 1906
Four Days of Fury: Atlanta 1906, by resident playwright Addae Moon, involves audiences in the ideas, debates, emotions, and perspectives that led to the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot – a pivotal, yet unfamiliar event in Atlanta’s history.
The riots transformed modern Atlanta in positive and negative ways. While the ensuing reinforcement of Jim Crow segregation after the riots made life more difficult for African Americans, it also led to the evolution of Auburn Avenue as one of the most affluent Black business districts in the country, and shaped the way that the city negotiates race and racial conflict.

"Depicting a sense of citywide escalating tension is not an easy thing to do in a work of theater, but it’s one taken on successfully here in a way that certainly gives distant, buried history a sense of presence and immediacy." - ArtsATL (read review)
