Les Deux Noirs: Notes on Notes of A Native Son
April 15, 2019 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
From Helen Hayes award-winning director and playwright, Psalmayene 24. Set in the legendary Parisian café Les Deux Magots in 1953, Les Deux Noirs: Notes on Notes of A Native Son reimagines the meeting between Native Son author Richard Wright and essayist/activist James Baldwin. It explores the tension between Baldwin’s searing critiques of Native Son and Wright’s unbridled indignation in response—a confrontation between two mighty African-American artists, with echoes of a present-day rap battle.
