Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? And just whose uncle IS Uncle Ben?
Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look – a look narrated by none other than the iconic Morgan Freeman! (No, not really. C’mon guys – we’re a small non-profit theatre.) Using comedic sketches, improv, and character pieces, this one-man show from the mind of Dad’s Garage’s own Mark Kendall examines the representation of black males in the media. From prison to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus – we’ll explore some of the ways these images influence our views on race in everyday life. Word to your mother… but not the n-word.
