Event Description

Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? How does one play the race card? (And what does that even mean?) Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look. Using comedic sketches and improv, this hilarious one-man show examines the representation of black males in the media. From prison and white flight to “Reading Rainbow” and Black Jesus – we’ll explore some of the ways these images influence our views on race in everyday life.
