About this show

Being condemned to an underclass because of one's dark skin is all-too familiar to African-Americans. William Electric Black's newest play, The Whites, aims to illuminate the feelings that accompany this experience for the benefit of all the races. It's done with a unique concept of race reversal. He offers us a family drama in which the situation and characters are culturally black but the cast is white. We watch the Caucasian family of Harris and Rasheeda White contend with gun violence, school segregation and the aftermath of prison. For this family and their surrounding community, the everyday experiences of economic, political, and social injustice are imposed by African-Americans.
