Peformance starts at 7:00 PM I Was Born Black, I Live Black, and I’ma Die Probably Because I'm Black is a performance exploring the universal struggle for liberation, particularly in the case of Black social inequality. The title of the performance comes from a phrase in the 1969 novel The Spook Who Sat by the Door by Sam Greenlee and the Negritude literary movement. The Negritude literary movement was developed by francophone Black intellectuals, writers, and politicians in the 1930s as a means of protesting the social policy of assimilation.
