About this show

Race and science collide in Cassandra Medley's trenchant new drama. For Claire, a lifetime of work and dedication as a leading melanin scientist (those who believe people of color are genetically superior, due to higher concentrations of melanin) is culminating in a new book: in collaboration with her daughter Kalima. But Kalima's research in molecular genetics is leading her away from her mother's theories--and to greater success. Forced to choose between science and family, between her future and her history, Kalima must decide where her loyalty lies. A passionate and emotionally charged war of the minds, Relativity is a thrilling, thought-provoking journey that dares its characters -- and its audience -- to admit how far they would go to get what they want. Appropriate for all ages.
