Colorblind
Starring: Wallace Demarria', Taja V. Simpson, Marc Mahone, Reggie Myles, Kelvin Blunt, Mark Ridley, Aria London, Kristopher Lencowski



Colorblind dives head first into the long standing racial issues of this country. The endless conversations that have been had over the centuries from the plantations to the barbershops in regards to race are all brought out to the public. The colorline is examined from all points of view. In the end we find that we are all JUST PEOPLE. We find that humans all want the same things: to be loved, to love and to be respected.

Colorblind follows the life of the controversial spiritual leader of the Minority Empowerment movement Mr Clinton Muhammad. His militant speeches and strong willed stance against "oppresion and discrimination" of minorities has divided all that come in contact with him; some love him and idolize him while other dispise him and plot his assaination. His followers/team include Marcus Reed, an older black man that is a carry over from the civil rights era, Rasheed Alan, a reformed street thug that has now "found the light" under the guidance of Mr. Muhammad and Janet Smith, a naturally beautiful black woman that is a harvard graduate and comes from a more priviledged life than Mr. Muhammad but yet somehow they have found a common ground and now are a seemingly unbreakable team.

As Mr. Muhammad continues to fan the flames of hatred and racism, both his supporters and "haters" seems to grow continuously. Then suddenly at the height of his movement someone attempts to assinate him by blowing up his car. The accident leaves him completely blind and partially handicapped. No one knows who commited the crime, therefor, everyone is a suspect. He made enemies with the cops and the white media. He had envious and jealous members in his organization. He has hurt and offended the closest person to him, Janet Smith, by continuously leading her own romantically but ultimately refusing to be with her because he says "it could be detrimental to the cause." It seems that everyone has a reason to want him gone.

In a highly secluded hospital and still blind he finds himself falling deeply in love with his sole caregiver; his doctor. Doctor Yolanda Evans is a soulful, nurturing, brilliant, native of Chicago. She is not from the north side of Chicago, where the wealthy reside, instead, she is from the englewood area, where gang violence and gun shots are a regular thing. She has overcome her upbringing and emerged as one of the finest physicians in the country. While caring for Mr. Muhammad she has found herself falling for the charismatic leader. She is so in love with him that she never tells him her biggest secret, for fear that he will reject her once he discovers it. Her big secret is that she is white.

Once he regains his sight, he finds himself in the middle of a scandal of massive proportions. He has made a career of "painting the white race as evil" and now he finds himself deeply in love with a white woman. He also now realizes that he was always in love with the black woman that has stood by his side and supported him over the last seven years, but he was too stubborn and scared to show it. What will he do? Who will he choose? In a world that is drenched in racism, is it even possible to truly be neutral and just be a human being?

Colorblind is a story of love, patriotism, betrayal, violence and redemption. It is guaranteed to make the audience question "things." Is it possible to have a truly "colorblind" society? Does love care about ethnicity? By what measure is a man/woman truly judged?
