    “The Deep State, based on the twin pillars of national security imperative and corporate hegemony, has until recently seemed unshakable and the latest events may only be a temporary perturbation in its trajectory. But history has a way of toppling the altars of the mighty.” Project Unspeakable shakes the twin pillars by unearthing the truth […]

Mission of Project Unspeakable

Project Unspeakable was inspired by James Douglass’ groundbreaking and meticulously researched book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters.

Through the medium of live theater, our intention is to challenge the silence that for decades has surrounded the “unspeakable” assassinations of
John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert Kennedy.
In so doing, we also intend to shed light on the “unspeakables” of today — the officially covered-up crimes that have led to or worsened the multiple crises that currently beset our country and the world. In the broadest sense, Project Unspeakable is an attempt to liberate the truth, so that the truth can liberate us.
It is our hope that the Project Unspeakable play will be used by community groups of all kinds all over the country, for living room readings, readers’ theater events, as well as full dramatic productions, beginning on November 22nd, the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, or on significant dates during 2014-15.
