The Children of Children Keep Coming
by Russell Goings
Images by Romare Bearden
directed by Quentin Talley

The Children of Children Keep Coming by Russell Goings is an awe-inspiring contribution to literature. A breathtaking form of poetic expression, this unique work presents a riveting chronicle of the African American experience in the United States. The Children of Children Keep Coming is strung seamlessly together -- by poetry and prose, blues and gospel, hymns and jazz, work songs and prayers -- forcing the universal harmony of the cry for freedom and justice to reach an unforgettable pitch that cannot be ignored.This astounding mosaic of voices is accentuated by the images of Romare Bearden. On Q Performing Arts is honored to adapt this work for the stage and premiere this staged reading as the opening of Season 5: Behind The Dream.

This project was supported in part by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources and Arts & Science Council.
