TRUE COLORS: Stories from Jews of Color Exploring Identity and Community
Sunday, November 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join us for “TRUE COLORS,” a captivating online salon theatre show presented by The Braid (formerly Jewish Women’s Theatre). This enlightening production spotlights Jews of Color, delving deep into their personal stories of identity, resilience, and the quest for belonging. While reflecting on challenges unique to Jews of Color, TRUE COLORS reveals the universal human experience that binds us all. From a daughter born to a Jewish mother and a Black/Chinese father learning to celebrate her diversity to a woman grappling with her Jewish and Latin heritages, and an African American man reconciling his Jewish identity, each tale unveils profound truths about acceptance and understanding. Ronda Spinak, The Braid’s Artistic Director, captures the essence of the production: “These are poignant tales of commitment, questioning, and connection— quintessential and universal Jewish stories.” Conceived and produced as part of The Braid’s Salon Theatre season in May 2019, and masterfully curated and adapted by Ronda Spinak, directed by Susan Morgenstern, and co-produced by Eric Greene, this is a show not to be missed.
