HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALCOLM & LORRAINE!
In commemoration of Malcolm X and Lorraine Hansberry’s shared birthday, Changing Perceptions Theater presented its second annual Happy Birthday Malcolm and Lorraine! production in May 2018. Five new generation Black playwrights interpreted portions of speeches and interviews by Malcolm X and Lorraine Hansberry into short scenes to create Happy Birthday Malcolm and Lorraine! “Changing Perceptions Theater’s mission is paved by Malcolm and Lorraine’s spirit and drive to sharpen the Black Psyche,” states Changing Perceptions Theater’s Executive Director and Owner, Shaun Neblett. “Bringing different emerging Black theater artists together every year to draw meaning from Malcolm and Lorraine’s ideas to create a show is our way of sending their spirits our gratitude and keeping their important teachings alive.”
