THE COLORED MUSEUM
THE COLORED MUSEUM has electrified, discomforted, and delighted audiences of all colors, redefining our ideas of what it means to be black in contemporary America. Its eleven “exhibits” undermine black stereotypes old and new and return to the facts of what being black means. Although funny on its surface, The Colored Museum attempts to engross black and white audiences as witnesses, accomplices and participants in the proceedings. The characters, as prized vessels, display their timeworn layers when they pour out their fears, loathing and pain to be absorbed by visitors to The Colored Museum.
