  Black! at Athenaeum Theatre

Black!

Athenaeum Theatre
2936 N. Southport Chicago

In "BLACK!," Brown inhabits an array of characters from Africa, the United States, England and Jamaica, performing each person's individual perspective and sharing his experiences. The production highlights the nuances and life perspectives of various people who are from the Black global community. Many stereotypes currently exist which seem to 'mesh' all black people and their stories together. The truth is that there are distinct differences and very definite similarities between Black people from all walks of life. In addition, each carries their own distorted and often exaggerated opinions about the other, which is a way to distinguish a separation, even though in truth, they are more alike than they believe. "BLACK!" uses the power of language and performance to delve into these characters to reflect on this communities' history and their future as well as what they do and do not share of the global Black experience.
