BLACKEYED:

Plays and Monologues

 

This is a book about the Black experience. The topics covered include housing and foreclosure, suicide, assault, mental health, and more. The book intersects with critical race theory because the majority of this work positions race at the center of the experiences of the fictional or fictionalized characters. Embedded in these chapters are the interweaving of personal and ancestral stories, news reports, informal conversations, observations, interviews, and online research expressed in language unapologetically Black, critical, reflexive, and proud.
