Written and conceived by longtime labor organizer Gene Bruskin, The Moment Was Now takes you back to 1869 in post-civil war Baltimore during the period of Reconstruction, a moment when America almost did the right thing. Echoing the current moment, the musical centers around the impassioned search for unity among the dynamic leaders of powerful movements, at a meeting convened by Frederick Douglass. Hope hangs in the balance at this turning point in US history.
