Theater: Keeping colors white 

Thursday, Jan. 17

OK, so you wake up one morning and POOF! ... there are no black people. At first you think, naw that can't be right. Black people are everywhere. Hell, the African Diaspora covers a great deal of the world from the Americas clear across the Middle East and into Europe and Asia. Can you imagine a day where you saw no one of African descent? That's the plot behind On Q Productions' A Day of Absence. This presentation follows the events in a small Southern town where folks have gone missing. The twist: all the characters are Caucasian, but played by African-Americans. Funny to be sure. Seating is limited. RSVP for opening night; meet artist Willie Little. Also playing Sunday, Jan. 20 (3 p.m.) and Monday, Jan. 21 (Noon & 3 p.m.). Free. Levine Museum of the New South, 200 E. 7th St. 704-333-1887 ext. 501. www.museumofthenewsouth.org.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
