Courage Under
Fire: The Story of Elroy is a compelling story about family, race, politics, and redemption. It explores the life of Elroy Simpson, AfroSolo founder Thomas
Roberts Simpson’s father. Elroy committed a simple, everyday act that proved to be revolutionary. Had it happened a few years earlier, he could have been
hung from a tree. Growing up in the south, Elroy conflated family life with navigating the horrors of Jim Crow, segregation, discrimination and racism.

Courage Under Fire... is a informational story, one filled with pride, resistance, forgiveness, and transcendence. ​This performance is a Fundraiser for the Berkeley Black Repertory Group Theater
