If one man’s story can speak for his time, then Lonnie Carter’s Lemuel sings it, in jumping jive talk, ragged rhythms, choral chanting, hip-hop tongue twisters, and the rolling thunder of a civil rights sermon. It was similarly rarefied word dazzle that made Carter’s The Sovereign State of Boogedy Boogedy–also deftly directed by Dennis Zacek–a ten-course feast for the ears.
