You gotta check out this show, N*GGER WETB*CK CH*NK, if it travels to your part of the country. It's coming to Los Angeles later this month, May 19, Luckman Fine Arts Complex.
N*W*C is a critically-acclaimed and explosive comedy that charges into the dangerous territory of race in the United States. Developed from the actual life stories of its three cast members, the play weaves together ensemble and monologue work with slam poetry, stand-up comedy, and hip-hop.
It's an amazing show that helps young people -- and older too!-- dialogue about issues they don't get a lot of guidance on... racial slurs and stereotypes and how the words make people feel.
Stop at any bus stop after high school and you'll hear a whole lot of hurt being passed around. I don't know about you, but I just HATE hearing the N-word being used... whether it's in a hateful way or a way between friends. I just cringe and think about my grandparents' life experiences for some reason.
Anyway, check out the N*W*C website for more information.
