Literature to Life presents professionally staged adaptations of award-winning literary works performed by a single actor. Black Boy is a powerful account of one young man’s journey from innocence to experience as a black youth living in the Jim Crow South. A tour de force, the actor plays upwards of fifteen characters from author Richard Wright’s past. This special abridged performance will be accompanied by discussion that encourages students and audiences to engage in self-reflection and discovery.
This program is part of KCA’s Revelations Daytime Performance Series.
