Acting Black

May 18, 2017 - May 20, 2017

Part spoken word, part stand-up comedy, part Ted Talk complete with PowerPoint presentation and inspired by the styles and traditions of the likes of Richard Pryor, George Carlin, and the outrageous Lord Buckley, Acting Black riffs on the roots of American racism and its consequences for all of us. You will laugh out loud while being hit where you live, in the gut. Acting Black explores the appropriation of the African American narrative through performance and traces the birth of its’ beginning from a single individual on a specific night in Louisville, Kentucky in 1828, to the racial conflicts we still endure to this day.

Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
