22nd Annual Heman Sweatt Symposium on Civil Rights: Theatrical Performance

Wed, March 26, 2008 • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM • Homer Rainey Hall, Jessen Auditorium

Platanos and Collard Greens is a thought-provoking romantic comedy that tactfully addresses stereotypes, prejudices and urban myths that exist between African Americans and Latinos, within the context of Hip-Hop, humor, and satire. The play impels the audience to evaluate pervasive stereotypes. Platanos humorously displays these common, yet outrageous, viewpoints while deftly shooting them down and poetically exposing them as misrepresentations of reality.
