If You Can't Stand the Heat

Blues City Cultural Center engaged Orange Mound community residents, ages 50 and over, as well as their care-givers, over a six-month period through serial drama and technology to explore health issues that disproportionately affect African American populations. Recordings of the serial performances were made available on Blues City’s YouTube Channel and played at the Christ Community Health Services and the Orange Mound Community Services Centers.
