THE STORIES OF US - Your Struggles Are My Struggles - La Afro Mexicana

Houston, TX

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present

Situation: Various women in the African Diaspora are presenting monologues about their experiences. An Afromexican woman shares her experiences navigating her culture.

Subject Matter: Identity, Racism, Afrolatinidad, Being understood

Note from the Playwright: “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.
