Rhapsody in Black
School-only performances are by invitation only
Monday, March 12 , 2018
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.
Audio description (AD) is available for this performance. AD provides access to the visual elements of a performance, like action, costumes, sets and gestures. Pick up a headset from the patron services desk at the Lied Center to access this service. For more information, visit reader.ku.edu.
