The Black Snowman
by Deborah Torraine, Music by Gary Rue. Based on the book by Phil Mendez
Understanding cultural heritage brings a renewed sense of hope and pride.
Jacob and his brother build a snowman from the grimy snow of city streets. When they place the kente — a colorful storytelling cloth from Africa — around its shoulders, the snowman magically comes to life, and shows them stories of their ancestry and culture.
African drumming and dance provide an authentic backdrop for this Black History Month celebration of family, self, and heritage.
Produced in loving memory of the playwright.
