At the center of Cassandra Medley’s play is the controversial idea that higher concentrations of melanin in the genetic makeup of people of color make them mentally, physically, and spiritually superior. Based on the scientific studies of her now-deceased father, Kalima, a fledgling molecular scientist looking to come into her own, has a difficult time owning his flawed research. Her mother Claire, who carries her deceased husband’s scientific torch, has a hard time reckoning with her daughter’s enlightenment. Original music composed and performed by Stuart K. Robinson. Includes an interview with Dr. Stanley Nelson, Professor of Human Genetics and Psychiatry at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Also starring Judy Ann Elder, Lorraine Toussaint, Jason Ritter and Terrell Tilford.
