The Colored Museum Fall 2008

Written in 1985, The Colored Museum is a satirical and biting look at the icons of Black life, shared with the Macalester community, to critique and celebrate a specific cultural history. The audience will discover the unique stories of the African American experience, re-examined in an actual tour of the “village” gallery through a museum of humor, pathos, song, and performance as the play puts the Black struggle in contemporary perspective. In conjunction with the play, the Macalester College Art Department is presenting “Beyond the Colored Museum,” a gallery featuring works by 16 local African American artists.
