Unit 6 Post 1 by Louis Onoratini

Black Girl Linguistic Play took me by surprise, not only because I had a great time while watching it but also because I somehow felt that I could relate to some parts of it. To me it seemed to transcend racial and gender norms and to speak to a larger audience that was not made up of only African-American Women. I felt that the scene between the two sisters was very evocative of the relation I have with my brother while also highlighting the fact that no matter one’s race, growing up is not easy and mental illnesses are very real.

My main question about this performance was in regards to the chalk, why was it necessary and what did it signify?
