Based on her experiences traveling through Europe, the Americas and Africa, Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe's one-woman show explores the Black diaspora. Part travelogue and party history lesson, the performance focuses on the impact of migration and how Africans have both adapted to new cultural situations and left a permanent mark due to their emigration. Traveling While Black is the second part of Cooper-Anifowoshe's trilogy, Adventures of a Black Girl, and examines the post-slavery condition of Black travel, both fanciful and forced. Personal, poignant and smart, her performance lends a distinct perspective on transcontinental crossings. Learn More

This small theater production was decent. The concept was interesting and the actresses were good. They kept my attention for most of the play which is not easy to do with only two people in the play and not a lot of movement in the beginning. The one woman sat in a chair most of the time. There were some areas in the play that I thought needed tightening or needed better transitions. Not so sure about the ending either. Regardless, you should go and support this company.
Black activist and lawyer, Rehema Salaam (Brit Frazier), the daughter of an Oakland Black Panther – who sits on Death Row for the murder of an Oakland Police Officer – is locked in a room and in conflict with Kathryn Tinney (Lisa Anne Porter), the daughter of the murdered officer, in an effort to heal their open wounds. As the negotiations intensify in explosive and familiar ways, the sins of the fathers are visited upon the daughters as they battle to protect their father’s names. Directed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe.
