"POWER!" STOKELY CARMICHAEL

MESHAUN LABRONE

Executive Producer | Writer | Performer

Is very excited to present his world premier second solo show, “POWER!”
STOKELY CARMICHAEL. Stokely Carmichael was known for becoming the
driving force behind the philosophy of “Black Power.” Labrone will explore this
philosophy, movement and man with elements of the theatre of the Absurd.
Labrone was a repertory theatre member of the Miami Theatre Center (2005-
2007) and has been in such plays as Two Trains Running (M Ensemble), Body
and Sold (The Kennedy Center) and The Tin Soldier under the direction of
former Moscow Art Theatre Director, Slava Dolgochev. He earned his BFA
from Florida International University in Miami, 2005, a TEFL certificate in Prague, Czech Republic, 2006.
In 2011, Mr. Meshaun received international recognition for his critically acclaimed One-Man show, Right to Remain…
Tupac Shakur ; performed at the Tara Theatre, Off-West End, London. In the play, Labrone explores Shakur’s
love of William Shakespeare and highlights the parallels between The Young Black Male and Richard III. With his
performance, Labrone brought the classical theatre community and hip-hop community together to witness a
truly groundbreaking production.
This performance is dedicated to: my son, Miles, My Father, Willie Ricks,
E Ethelbert Miller, Karen Spellman, Julian Bond, all of the workers of SNCC, and all of my Ancestors
