Theatre artist Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe will join me on La Raza Chronicles in a conversation about her one-woman show “Traveling While Black”. Written and performed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe, it plays at the Brava Theatre in San Francisco from October 3 to October 26, 2014.

Hear an intimate view of living creatively with racism while working against it. Racism can’t hold back Edris’ overflowing creative spirit that travels where the spirit takes her. And she has a vibrant, adventurous and humorous spirit.
Including a segment about an African America artist fits well in our multi-racial Latino public and cultural affairs program. Driving while brown is not so different.
Along the way Edris also fills us in on Black theater history and US history. She was one of 3 Black children bussed to her elementary school in Tennessee.  “Traveling While Black” is part of an original series “Adventures of a Black Girl” by this prolific theatre artist. Ticket are available at Brava.org
