Voices From The Black That I Am

Voices from the Black That I Am is a theatrical meditation of questions on issues of blackness, gender, sexuality, and nationalism. It is the personal journey of a black Caribbean immigrant navigating various foreign territory and feeling attached and non-attached throughout. Each monologue is intended to underscore and steer the audience off course from the main poetic narrative... a narrative constantly embodying Sankofa: looking back to go forward.
