Event Details

That Color Blind Kind of Love

 By Rebekah L. Pierce

Twyla and Sampson are kindred spirits that have loved and searched for one another for over a century. It started in 1855 on a plantation in Virginia when 15 year old Twyla was a slave owned by Sampson’s tobacco family. When Sampson’s mother learns of their illicit love affair and the impending birth of their love child, Twyla is sold to the highest bidder. Ninety years later (1935), Twyla and Sampson are reborn and find each other again, but the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 forbids miscegenation. They are both jailed and forced to divorce. It’s the present and the kindred spirits have found one another again for a third time. Will society and their families finally allow them to love one another freely? That Color Blind Kind of Love takes audiences on a ride in and out of the past to the present in search of the true meaning of love, tolerance and diversity. Is love truly color blind in this so-called Post-race era of the nation’s first black president?
