Melanized is a multimedia tap show looking at the strength it takes to live as a person of color. Through tap dance, live music, and film we will address systemic racism by looking into issues such as Red Lining, Concentration Camps, and Police Brutality. We will also showcase the beauty that comes with living as a person of color by exploring various art form created by POCs such as Gospel, R&B, and Konnakol.|
