Innocent? Black and poor Lena Baker was judged guilty in 1944 rural Georgia of killing a white man. But wasn’t it rape and self-defense? Not so, said a racist judge and jury of 12 white men, and Lena became the first and only woman executed in Georgia’s electric chair. Finally, we hear her side of the story. Playwright: Janice Liddell. Director: Todd Murray. Recommended for: teenagers, adults, elderly, theatre community, LGBTQ community. Links: review, review2, review3, review4.
