"The Talk" - Boomerang fundraiser
This is a fundraiser for Boomerang Youth, Inc. The event is a performance followed by a Question and Answer discussion. The Talk by Sonny Kelly is a one-man performance that draws on the voices of ancestors, elders, youths, and intellectuals to engage in the difficult conversations that we must have with our children as we prepare them to survive and thrive in a racialized America. This eclectic theatrical experience weaves together interactive theater, literature, a dynamic embodied performance, and a multi-media production. The Talk was born of a painful conversation that Sonny had to have with his son to prepare him to face a world that often condones and enacts violence against bodies like his. Sonny humanizes the often racialized politics of issues like “stop and frisk,” “zero tolerance” school policies, and the “School to Prison Pipeline.”
