Spivey is the former artistic director at the Karamu House and theater in Cleveland, the oldest African-American theater house in United States that is famous for premiering plays of Langston Hughes, a native Clevelander.
Spivey turned heads when he directed the play titled "Objectively/Reasonable," a play about the tragic killing 12-year-old Tamir Rice, whom Cleveland police gunned down at a Park and Recreation Center in Cleveland in 2014 as the Black kid was toting a toy gun.
Spivey told Cleveland Urban News.Com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspaper, that the Tamir Rice play, which ran earlier this year, will return in February of 2017.
