About This Show

Filled with dynamic characters and vibrant music, Tanya Barfield’s Blue Door is a searing and soul-searching examination of family and identity. A mathematics professor, sleepless during a night of personal and professional crisis, is visited by his African-American ancestors. Four generations – from the antebellum era to the Black Panthers – challenge him with their compelling stories, until he starts to understand what it means to be black. Two centuries of tales, which this ivory-tower academic could never find in his beloved books, come alive.
