Come Alive Human Family--The Play

Come Alive Human Family is a stage play that consists of a series of monologues based upon the lives of various people who dedicated their lives to the advancement of civil and human rights.

The play opens at Moving In The Spirit’s Beam Theatre, located at 750 Glenwood Ave, Atlanta GA on Friday, January 29 2016. 

Opening night will be a Red Carpet event.  Doors will open at 6:30pm for those who want to be a part of the picture taking before the play begins.  There are two more shows:  Saturday, January 30, 7pm and a Sunday matinee on January 31, 4pm.

Come Alive Human Family—The Play introduces the audience to a moving learning experience by way of entertainment.  Using monologues and a host of soul stirring spiritual songs, the characters come to life on stage, telling their stories of their struggles in working toward an end to inhumane discrimination. 

You will meet many unsung heroes and sheroes who will share with you how and why they put their lives on the line in an effort to end the maltreatment of their fellow human beings on the bases or race, creed and color.

You will meet Paul Robeson, Harriet Tubman, Shirley Chisholm, Viola Liuzzo, John Brown, A. Philip Randolph, Fay Abrahams Stender, Elijah Muhammad, Cesar Chavez, Billie Holiday and a host of others who are well known and little known.  They will come alive and let their stories be told!

Red Hot Reviews:

Ajeenah El-Amin:

"Peace Lauretta. I just want you to know how much I enjoyed your play tonight! It was great. My mother also wanted to come but she had to babysit but she asked will you also have the play next month for Black History month. If so I would love to see it again and have her see it for the first time. Again it was just great and all of the actors were great! I would also like to know where do you find such great actors and if they are volunteer or paid actors? I also have some plays I'd like to come to life and those are some great actors I'd like to know."


Dawud Abdullah, our Master of Ceremonies on The Red Carpet Opening Night as well a talented stage performer known as "Unkle Woo" WRITES:

HAHA YOUR SO WELCOME BROTHER Imam Muhammad Abdullah AND MAAAAN YALL DID A EXCELLENT JOB AS WELL, AS THE CO-WRITERS AND CO-PRODUCERS!!!



"Come Alive Human Family The Play is a powerful must see!! I really enjoyed this play. The play was very well articulated. "Hats Off" to Imam Muhammad Abdullah & Lauretta Ali! One feature of the play that really amazed me was the perfection of the acting . The actors and actresses seemed as if they actually were the character in which they were playing, thus creates an exciting mesh. I was particularly impressed by the way that the characters seemed to actually emotionally feel and exist in their own unique roles."



This play gives homage and honor to our ancestors and you can learn something as well, little known black history fact "our children need to see and know". Took my grand daughter and a couple of her friends and they thoroughly enjoyed. Keep in mind this play is 2 hrs. long with an intermission but it held there interest and they wanted to come back to see it again!!! Speaks volumes!!!



Hey my sister, what a great opening night. I enjoyed the play along with the Education that was presented on OUR History. Some things were introduced that some of us did not even know about our Hero's. Such a success and fun event. I am glad I was able to participate and show love and support. Until next time....
