A Destination of My Own: The Life Story of Richard Durham

Colorado TINTS (Theatre in Nontraditional Spaces) has announced its latest production, Destination of My Own. Destination of My Own is a full-length, one-actor play chronicling the life of Richard Durham.

The play is written by Mike Broemmel with Jennifer Dempsey as the producer and script consultant. TGKAFG is cast in the lead role, portraying Richard Durham.

Richard Durham was the creator and writer of Destination Freedom, a weekly radio drama that aired for two years in the 1940s. The radio serial dramatized the lives of important Black American historical figures and is described as “nothing ever before heard on radio.” The radio program strove to defeat commonplace stereotypes routinely attached to Black Americans. In many ways, Richard Durham’s work has been described as an important precursor to the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements.
