Straddling the color line, not at home in any hue, a young man struggles with what it means to be Black – and discovers what it means to be a man. Charting one man’s odyssey through the juggernaut that is racism in America, RHAPSODY IN BLACK is a prismatic look at life on the color line – a poignant, enraging, and often hilarious travelogue through the psyche of the perpetual “other”. A blistering indictment of tribalism in all forms, RHAPSODY IN BLACK deconstructs notions of race and identity – provoking thought, realigning perspectives and sparking precisely the sort of conversation we all really need to be having right about now.
