Carlyle Brown & Co. presents as part of The Music Hall’s Innovation + Leadership series: Acting Black
Renowned African-American writer and performer, Carlyle Brown returns to The Music Hall with Acting Black, direct from his sold out Guthrie Studio performances.
Acting Black is part spoken word, part stand-up comedy, part TED Talk. Inspired by the styles and traditions of the likes of Richard Pryor, George Carlin, and the outrageous Lord Buckley. Acting Black explores the roots of American racism and its consequences for all of us.
Acting Black examines the appropriation of the African American narrative from a single night in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1828 to the racial conflicts we endure today. You will laugh out loud while simultaneously being hit in the gut. Come join the conversation.
Acting Black is presented as part of The Music Hall’s Innovation + Leadership series. Launched in 2011, Innovation + Leadership welcomes international thought leaders, authors, and local experts in interactive, lively, and informative conversations where citizens can grapple with today’s biggest topics and questions and make better the world in which they live.
