THE STORIES OF US - What Does That Even Mean? - Black Enough

Houston, TX

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present

Situation: Various women in the African Diaspora are presenting monologues about their experiences. A Black American woman talks about the bias she experiences for learning Spanish.

Subject Matter: Spanish, Second Language Learning, Racism, identity 

Note from the Playwright: This piece is meant to explore what African American Spanish Speakers encounter when learning languages.

“The Stories of Us” is a collection of stories that dig deep into intercultural conflict between African Americans and Latinos, African Diaspora identity and Afrolatinidad. Think of it as a scrapbook of experiences, histories and feelings on the stage. It’s takes you through stories about African roots in Mexico, the time you told your brother you were dating a “Black girl” and that moment you were proud of your heritage. “The Stories of Us” details our stories as people of color trying to navigate each other’s worlds and build one together.
