Rhapsody in Black

  • Grades 7-12

  • $8.50

Rhapsody in Black is a one-man show that explores LeLand Gantt’s personal journey to understand and eventually transcend racism in America. A prismatic look at life on the color line, Gantt presents a poignant, enraging, and often hilarious travelogue through the psyche of the perpetual "other." As he spends a lifetime struggling with what it means to be black, he ultimately understands what it means to be a man. A blistering indictment of tribalism in all forms, Rhapsody in Black deconstructs notions of race and identity--provoking thought, realigning perspectives, and sparking the conversation we need right now.

Links to blackness and black identity, racism, America, cultural awareness, otherness, empathy
