Join DACAMERA for a new, world premiere production memorializing the Sugar Land 95. Bringing together original music, poetry and visuals, Unearthed pays tribute to the tragic history behind the recent discovery of the remains of 95 Black people in unmarked graves in Sugar Land, Texas. They were convict laborers, swept back into “slavery by another name” in the post-Civil War era, arrested for petty crimes like vagrancy and forced into back-breaking and often fatal labor in the sugar fields of Texas. Now, Houston-native jazz artist Kendrick Scott explores this untold story in a new production, teaming up with an outstanding Houston-based creative team including the former Houston poet laureate Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton and performed by the acclaimed Harlem String Quartet and a trio of first-call jazz musicians.Tickets are available now and can be purchased at To learn more about DACAMERA and any upcoming events, please visit
