Let's pretend that you are free of your own history.
And I am free of my history.
Dutchman is Amiri Baraka's award-winning one-act play, revolving around two characters: Lula, a white woman, and Clay, a black man.
It lands right at the intersectionality of race, gender and class to present an explosive exploration of white privilege, masculinity, power and sexuality.
For Black History Month Tristan Bates Theatre celebrates Amiri Baraka (then known as LeRoi Jones) both for his civil rights activism and as a revolutionary provocateur of African-American poetry; significantly affecting the course of American literature.
