Z Space and The Emeruwa Music Foundation present:
Licensed to Drive While Black
and other things to do while in whiteface
June 30 & July 1, 2017 at Z Below
A One-person Show by Nkechi Emeruwa
In Licensed to Drive While Black the interdisciplinary performer, walks us through what happens when a dark chocolate Nigerian woman who sees the world from a white chocolate man's perspective lands in the United States of America. Things get interesting as cultures clash internally and externally as she discovers who she is and who she is not in a world full of blackface and whiteface characters. Through a satirical and uncensored exploration of the history of blacks in America, Nkechi ushers the audience through 75 minutes of hilarious commentary while encouraging us to check our privilege and race at the door!
