Poor Man Rich Soul

Saturday, November 12, 2022, & Saturday, November 19, 2022, at 5:30 p.m.

Poor Man Rich Soul by Jimmy Jenkins is back with two more shows at Duke Ellington School of the Arts!

“Based on the unfair life of Richard “Rich” Soul, a former world boxing champion, now drunken husband and father who was falsely accused of murder. After squandering all his riches from boxing, Richard has no money to hire a good lawyer or fight the case. Despite his innocence, he is sentenced to Death Row, awaiting execution by electrocution. It is then that Richard finds holes in his case that he ultimately believes can lead to his freedom, but first he must learn to appreciate all the things in life he took for granted.”
