Black Boy: A Literature of Life Presentation

March 13 @ 7:00 pm

$15 – $25

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. It is both the unashamed confession of a proud non-conformist and a profound indictment—a poignant and disturbing record of social injustice and human suffering.

Having premiered at the Kennedy Center, this Literature to Life original was one of the first titles on the LTL roster to tour communities nationally. A tour de force, the actor plays over fifteen characters from Richard Wright’s past.

By Richard Wright. Adaptation and Direction by Wynn Handman. Performed by Tarantino Smith.

Recommended for ages 13+
