- Rosa Parks

SYNOPSIS; You Can't Break My Spirit: The Colors of Justice is a play about creating Love, Peace, and Victory in the midst of challenges. A young brown woman goes undercover into the Toronto Justice system so she can understand the experience of the people she serves in her missionary work. She expects to be released from jail after one night but instead is trapped in a system that will only release you if you plead guilty or have tens of thousands of dollars to pay lawyers who are experts in their field and are well connected. The faces around her are vulnerable and aggressive souls who have given up on any possibility of having a normal life, people who have lost everything; casually sacrificing their souls for momentary freedom and who are trapped in a cycle that seeks to destroy them. The protagonist encounters dishonesty, systemic and overt racism, politics, and injustices within the legal system and finally uncovers a system that does not work efficiently at every level. As she searches for solutions she finds the true meaning of love, courage, and dignity. Her bravery, determination and persistent faith at every step of the journey are finally rewarded after spending two hundred thousand dollars and fighting for the freedom to live her life on her terms.

You Can't Break My Spirit is suitable for 10 years old and up. No swearing, no sexual content and no violence
