Event description

Description

The satirical one-act, eight-scene performance work discusses black culture in America and infuses questions and statements relative to identity, racism, relationships, politics, the typical stereotypes and more. Through the voices of seven actors, it depicts a very enlightening perspective of the black experience. Dear Black People is meant to be a mirror to some, and a cultural baptism to others,said James.

This work, written and performed in poetry verse, has made audiences laugh and learn, simultaneously. Some of the questions it poses are: Can you be pro-black and date a non-black person? Do black women who wear weaves subconsciously want to be white? What is the solution to black issues that black people alone can execute?
