Our Life: The Black Youth Stories




Our Life: The Black Youth Stories is a production of carefully pieced stories from black Americans about the black experience in America. Specifically, these narratives will focus on the experience of black youths, past and present, forced to view their blackness as limitation and the lasting effects these limitations create. Our intent is to develop a performance piece that creates a conversation about the current climate of black America, compares it to the conditions of the past, and fosters dialogue on how we can begin to navigate the continuing adversity.

There will be talkbacks held after each performance to allow an open forum during which audience members may express their thoughts about the issues at hand as well as the production's process and message.
