     "Black and 25 in America is the silent scream manifested.  It's must-see theater."

Black and 25 in America is an intense one-man play that explores the issues of race, class, gender and identity through the life stories of unforgettable characters such as Big Man, Joshua Thomas Northington III, Darron, and Marcy. The sensitive subject matter of this bold work broadens our understanding and leaves audience members forever changed. Award-winning actor/playwright Jeremy Gillett gives piercing insight on what it is to be a young, Black adult in America today. Through a series of vignettes, the play reveals how each character feels invisible and without voice. A brief talk-back discussion with the playwright follows each show.

Join us for these special Los Angeles stagings of Black & 25 in America during Black History Month and President's Day weekend. Contribute your voice to our thought-provoking conversations filling a void in today's world...

"I gave birth to this child hoping that the world had changed enough to embrace my child differently. I have now learned the deeply painful lesson that the world cannot embrace what it cannot see. The world cannot love what it fails to understand and the child cannot prevail with a blind parent in a blind world. What can I say when the child says, 'they do not see me' except 'I know, my child. I know.'"  -Anonymous, after seeing Black & 25 in America
