Season 43 Show Summaries:

East Texas Hot Links
by Eugene Lee
Directed by Charles Jackson Jr.
In the summer of 1955, local men gather in Charlesetta's Top o' the Hill Cafe in East Texas. Over drinks and card games, the men joke and discuss the changing times, the rise of the Klan, and the murder or disappearance of young black men. Tensions slowly rise, leading to a life-changing climax.

Black Nativity
by Langston Hughes
Directed by D. Wambui Richardson
The Christmas story in dialogue, narrative, pantomime, gospel song and folk spirituals—the unique creation of the poet and playwright Langston Hughes.

Bread N Gravy: The Songs and Life of Ethel Waters
by Frank Cullen and Donald McNeilly
Directed by D. Wambui Richardson
Bread N' Gravy: The Songs and Life of Ethel Waters tells the story of American singer Ethel Waters and her many contributions to jazz and blues genres. Along the way, you will learn more about Ethel Waters' life through song and performance theatre.

The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin
by Kirsten Childs
Directed by Khira Haley
What’s a black girl from sunny Southern California to do? White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches. Black people are shouting “Black is beautiful” while straightening their hair and coveting light skin. Viveca Stanton’s answer: Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be! In a humorous and pointed coming-of-age story spanning the sixties through the nineties, Viveca blithely sails through the confusing worlds of racism, sexism and Broadway showbiz until she’s forced to face the devastating effect self-denial has had on her life.

Thoughts of a Colored Man
By Keenan Scott II
Directed by D. Wambui Richardson
Dawn breaks in Brooklyn, and seven black men rise to meet the day. One of them, a finance director, leaves his luxurious condo to jog around their rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, just as a grocery-store clerk is starting another soul-crushing shift. At the bus stop, two best friends debate the intricacies of modern dating, while a basketball coach at the youth center grapples with his unrealized potential. At the hospital, a teacher and his father-in-law welcome a new life. And at the barbershop, the whole group meets for cuts and conversation as sparks fly over questions of identity and community. Through the storytelling style of SLAM Narrative, THOUGHTS OF A COLORED MAN celebrates the hopes, ambitions, joys, and triumphs of black men in a world that often refuses to hear them.
