A one-woman show about the crazy things that happened to Donna as a black performer roaming across America as our national story was breaking and reforming.
After President Obama was elected, many people she encountered who weren't people of color decided that they alone knew what it meant to be black in America - and they felt perfectly comfortable telling her she was doing it wrong! Some folks were scrambling to deal with a new reality that required them to either rethink what they had always believed, or come up with some kind of elaborate theory about why they didn't have to. From a wealthy man complaining that minorities have it better than him to a Tea Party Patriot who tried to convince her Obama wasn't an American, she heard it all.
Funny, thought-provoking, fascinating and every single word of it is true!
