SOMEDAY this pain will be useful to you, Cyrus Aaron’s insightful debut collection of short essays and poems. This written work was created in conjunction with his original play in hopes to give the audience a reason to continue the dialogue. The playwright and poet explores the pain and psychological plight of what it means to be a black man in America. SOMEDAY is a conversation on: systemic racism, implicit bias, privilege, police brutality, integration, and a legacy of burdens cast upon the black community. Aaron invites us to sit with a grief all too familiar for black bodies. This edition also includes excerpts from his original play.
