About this show

In a multi-media environment, Disposable Men pairs old-fashioned storytelling with innovative new technology in a solo work that demonstrates the role of the popular media in classifying African American men as "disposable." With a dose of sharp wit, James Scruggs gives life to a variety of characters and circumstances: from a waiter at a theme restaurant that features customized lynchings to a modern-day minstrel who performs at kids' parties and more. Scruggs's vantage point reveals a fate shared by Hollywood monsters and African American men in that both are often feared, killed and ultimately disposed of- sometimes in the most imaginative ways.
