The Magic Negro and Other Blackness

About the Show

Have you ever pondered the idea that Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham might be racially charged? Is it possible to skip and listen to hip hop at the same time? Do black people actually carry around race cards? Well, maybe it’s time to take a closer look. Mark Kendall uses a series of comedic sketches to examine the representation of black males in the media in his critically acclaimed one-man show. From prison to white flight, and even Reading Rainbow – we’ll explore some of the ways these images influence our views on race in everyday life.
