The Colored Museum in 2016 will play the Judge in The Trial of One Short-Sighted Black Woman vs. Mammy Louise and Safreeta Mae.
The African-American Shakespeare Company segues into the second part of its 25thanniversary season with a satire that uses the framework of a trial to put black female stereotypes on the stand as a means of laying out the argument that if African-Americans do not explore their own history and instead allow film, television and advertising to define their reality, they risk losing the tools and resources that have enabled them to survive a hostile world; first staged in 1990, it is the work of playwright Karani Marcia Leslie who spent years as an editor and staff writer for CBS, NBC and FOX with credits that include The Cosby Show and Parenthood.
