Rhapsody in Black, written and performed by LeLand Gantt, is a one-man show that explores his personal journey to understand and eventually transcend racism.

We follow him from an underprivileged childhood in the ghettos to scholastic achievement and a career that lands him in situations where he is virtually the only African-American in the room. How he manages to cope with being marked “the other” is recounted in remarkable and exquisitely moving detail.
