Genre: Drama, Dance, Festival
directed by Dan Friedman and Brian Mullin

Using Langston Hughes' poem "Let America Be America Again" and Allen Ginsberg's poem "America" as springboards, a cast of ten young performers, ages 15 23, from Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan and Queens, have created a unique Black History Month stage work entitled America (a conversation).

America (a conversation) is a mix of movement, text and music where the cast creates a conversation with their country, their history, their audience, and themselves asking: "Who speaks for America?" "What does America have to say?" and "Who/What is America anyway?"
