Black Face White Mask takes inspiration from current events, the politics of being of color on a PWI campus, and a book by Frants Fanon of a similar title (Peau Noire, Masques Blancs).
The first act, Suffocation, examines the feelings of students of color on campus, and the common themes of fear always on their minds.
Exploitation reviews the workers' strikes in France starting in November of 2018, relating them to the Baltimore Uprising and to student workers' experiences on campus.
The third and final act is Liberation. It is a psychical freeing of the burdens of being a student of color on campus, and an embracing of the joys of the experience.
Each act explores the experiences of Haverford students of color and their collective "masking". We hope you enjoy it.
