About Thoughts of a Colored Man

What To Watch For

  • "I believe that Thoughts of a Colored Man by Keenan Scott II aims to expand the definition of the 21st-century man of color beyond the oversimplified stereotypes that are often presented. As a man of color, I know too well that these distorted images have the dangerous potential to limit our humanity; often leaving us in search of who we indeed are. My goal through this theatrical experience of language, music, and dance is to give insight into the black male in search of their most dominant selves trying to escape demise. Holla!" —Director, Steve H. Broadnax III
