In the 1800's we were enslaved physically. But in 2020 we are enslaved mentally.
"The day you're born you look like your parents, the day you die you look like your decisions"
Come experience this thought provoking yet comedic show that will have you on the edge of your seat wanting more!!! Be prepared to laugh, cry, feel inspired and ask the question, why? This will be one of the most important faceoffs of people from the 1800's and 2020 you will ever witness. The production focuses on how the past has impacted the present. Or has it? Do the people of 2020 and beyond truly understand the fight that was fought to get us to where we are today? Would our ancestors be proud of how we represent them?
Richard Gallion has created a phenomenal show with amazing actors, and a spectacular set. Do to high demand, 1800's vs 2020 IS COMING BACK!

Richard Gallion - Writer/Director/Actor
As a writer, director, and actor, I stumbled upon these hidden talents after obtaining a basketball injury in college. Suffering a broken wrist and unable to fulfill my dream of being a professional athlete, I was chosen to travel as a runway model for Ebony and JET magazine Fashion Fair. While on tour, and during my downtime in-between shows, I developed a passion for writing. I began my acting career under the directorship of playwright John Ruffin, starring in the GMC-televised film “Love Me or Leave Me,” where I acted alongside Clifton Powell, Elise Neal, Carl Payne, Terri J. Vaughn and the legendary Shirley Murdock.
As one who understands discipline and consistency, I was fortunate to garner roles in FOX’S newest show APB, Transformers 4, USA’s Sirens, and FOX’s Empire directed by Lee Daniels, featuring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. This opportunity has opened up massive doors for me. I have also starred in Black Coffee, which was recently in the AMC Theaters, Chicago PD, which airs on NBC 5, and the new movie Halfway featuring Quinton Aaron.
