ONE DROP OF LOVE
The Black Theatre Troupe and the CSRD bring "One Drop of Love" to Arizona for a limited engagement!
"One Drop of Love" is a multimedia solo performance by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni that uses the ever-changing racial categories on the U.S. Census as the historical backdrop to this interactive show.
Throughout, the audience is asked to participate in defining and redefining these categories for themselves and one another. Cox DiGiovanni parallels this history with her own, and her family’s search for roots, identity and for justice. Audiences will travel from the 1700s to the present, to cities around the U.S., and to West and East Africa, to pursue more truth – leading to more justice – and then, perhaps to LOVE.
Each performance will be followed by a discussion that will provide a space for all theatergoers to openly and critically engage about race, racism, identity and shared history.
