This thought-provoking play is both intriguing and riveting as it traces the evolution of a movement which will eventually have a major impact on American society.

SUMMARY

This is a story about activism, a dramatization of true events during the early years of World War II. After trying to enlist in the army, Jimmy Thompson becomes distraught by the way he has been treated. He writes a letter to the then largest African-American newspaper in the United States, The Pittsburgh Courier, which goes on to champion the Double V campaign – V for victory in the war and a V for victory in racial equality at home. The Double V is an amazing true story about the nation’s first black civil rights movement and how one young man’s focus and persistence initiated societal changes through a simple letter to a newspaper.
