Ain't No Mo' is a play that imagines what would happen if America offered all Black Americans a one-way ticket to Africa, and most of them took the country up on it, believing it a better option than the racism, subjugation, and discrimination they see as otherwise impossible to overcome on American soil. Cooper's show plays out over a series of vignettes that take place before, during, and after that fictional Flight 1619 (a reference to the year the first enslaved Africans reportedly arrived in the then-colonies).
