The White Blacks
Thursday, June 18 at 7:00PM by Melanie Goodreaux
“Doors” Open at 6:45PM

Melanie Maria Goodreaux’s latest play takes place in the 1970s and addresses the complicated racial distinctions that plague one New Orleans family with a line of lighter skinned African-Americans that “pass for white.” They “pretend” to be white to reap the benefits that come with ‘whiteness’ but at what cost? The gamut of blackness is brought up by this honest look at colorism in New Orleans.  Love lives long, and here romance, family secrets, and generational curses get all mixed up in Alva’s gumbo!
