Fades and Fellowship
With a barbershop as a backdrop, this theatrical performance blends storytelling, music, and real life conversations. In African-American culture, the barbershop has long been called "the black man's country club" or "the 'hood's social club.” Spend the afternoon with ten barbers as they openly explore themes of family, racism, police, homophobia, politics, gangs, relationships, education, and more. Hear actual stories and memories of Dr. Martin Luther King by his barber Nelson Malden intervied by Kai Jackson, of Fox 45, and enjoy comedic laughter with “BET Man on the Street” comedian Larry Lancaster. In partnership with the Cambio Group, Darius Wilmore of Manipesto, Dr. LaMarr Darnell Shields, Reflections Eternal Barbershop, and Larkis Webber, CEO of Evolutionary Artworks, and Taharka Bros. Ice Cream Company. In conjunction with the exhibition Question Bridge: Black Males.
