What You'll Get

The year is 1944, segregation in the U.S. is prevalent and World War II is in full swing. At Port Chicago in California, African-American soldiers are being pushed by their commanders to load ammunition and other explosives onto two large ships. Not one of these men has been properly trained to handle dangerous cargo and, on one fateful day, something goes terribly wrong. Explosions shake the shipyard grounds with the force of an earthquake, shaking buildings as far east as Boulder City, Nevada, and 320 seamen lose their lives. What happens next is even more mind-boggling than the explosion itself. What exactly happened that summer night? How did it happen, and why? Find out when Port Chicago 50 comes to the Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica. NAACP Image Award winner Hal Williams and a brilliant cast take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions in this true-life inspired story as seen through the eyes of one of the survivors, Freddie Meeks.
