"In dramatizing the horrifying yet half-forgotten Tulsa Race Riot of 1921, Darren M. Canady's play False Creeds presents numerous unnerving sights and sounds.

False Creeds generates real suspense… The play draws historical parallels from the world of the Jim Crow South to the Hurricane Katrina debacle."Creative Loafing
