Description

True stories ranging from age 8 to 18 about a racially ambiguous biracial boy tackling racism and colorism in his community. Teaching himself how to live his life true to himself when some only see him as black, some say he's not black, and others say he's something else entirely. In Ford's second solo show, he really explores the growth from innocence in himself and the growth of ignorance in others.
