Rhapsody in Black

Rhapsody in Black

Following a powerful Lied Center performance in 2016, writer/actor Leland Gantt presents an inspiring and thought-provoking online production as part of the Lied Center’s MOSAIC Series. In this one-man theatrical performance, Gantt processes a lifetime struggling with what it means to be black while deconstructing notions of race and realigning perspectives.

This is a free event, but registration is required in order to receive the link to watch. There is also the option to add a donation to support the Lied Center.

Note: This performance includes adult subject matter and language.

Join us on the stream after the performance for a discussion and Q&A session with Leland Gantt, actor and writer of Rhapsody in Black, and Dr. Kwakiutl Dreher, Associate Professor of English and Ethnic Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Gantt and Dreher will discuss the performance of Rhapsody in BlackGantt's process in creating the piece, and take questions from the virtual audience.
