WOW. This is one of the most thought provoking events on stage. It is more than entertainment, it is a view of a segment of African-American society that is simply not discussed with those outside of it. It is a must see event.... THANK...continued

Description

Yellowman

is a celebration of language and the human sprit. It’s an exquisite and provacative exploration of racism within the Black community.

Alma, a dark-skinned African-American woman, and her childhood friend Eugene, a light skinned African-American man, have been life-long friends — yet when their friendship turns to love, the different colors of their skin raise obstacles that become insurmountable.

Are we on the inside what we appear to be on the outside? Are we ultimately victims of the biases and prejudices of our parents, our community, no matter what color our skin?
