Join Creative Strategies for Change for the fundraising premiere of Race Matters? An interactive story for change, written by and featuring K. Salim Ajanku. Also featuring Stevanie Williams, Kokayi Donladi, and Rachael Sharp, with an original score by Black Lash. Race Matters? Is a story about life in urban USA. Malik is 35, working class, a husband and father. He is a music teacher in an inner city high school, trying to get ahead, while making a difference. Malik encounters challenges at every turn. Through his relationships and experiences, and the layering of multimedia, the depth of double consciousness is surfaced, and the dissonance dissolved. The strength of Malik’s spirit, his self knowledge, and his commitment to his community ignite him to persevere and rise above. This is more than a performance; it is an opportunity to ask questions, think critically, and engage; it is part of a movement to deepen understanding across differences, and inspire innovative approaches to grappling with challenging social issues.
