A Black Carole
Sunday, May 7, 2017 from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Black Carole is a play about a man named Isaac Anagapa, who struggles with psychosis after his parent’s death; and how he loses his ability to love. Isaac is visited by his guarding angel the Clocks-man, who takes him on a road through redemption. In the process, he encounters spiritual leaders from the past, present, and future. Isaac learns the historical truth of his African American Heritage that sets him free, by helping him to regain his feelings of love, passion and will power to lead his people.
Followed by A panel discussion (No Propaganda):
How Love can break, make or create human condition in the African American community. The topics will be as follows:
- Social Economics
- Mental illness
- Violent aggression towards one another
- Community Support
- Lost Love of the Black Community
- Bondage does not have to keep you
- The Breakdown of the Black Male (The Truth)
- Exploitation of the Black Woman (The Truth)
- Having Faith and Hope keeps us going strong
In words of the Director & Writer Katrina Robinson in regards to social economics, "You can't cage people by taking their essential needs for growth, exploit them, and then expect them to be well mannered and civilized. It’s like this; a flower needs light and water to grow (essential needs). If enough darkness covers that flower, the flower begins to wilt and die, never growing or producing. Well, African American light has been blocked by a created force of darkness; making it almost impossible for them to find equal opportunity to blossom, as one may see a flower."
