Ali Graham, who created “Uncode” in 2016, and his wife, Myisa Plancq-Graham, aimed to give a comprehensive view of Black life and culture outside of the scope of mainstream outlets. The concept is what shaped the series’ name, which stems from the idea of “undoing the miseducation we’ve all received about one another,” according to creative director Plancq-Graham. The company will continue that undoing when their “Unscripted Pilots” local artists vignette screens Sunday, March 26, at 7 Stages Theatre as part of the festival.
