Black Girls- Robert Sparks

The performance “Black Girls” highlighted my personal bias in assuming that it would be a performance showing black women as divine figures who despite being face with societal and racial pressure never flinch. The play exposed this by fighting the stereotype of the strong/angry black woman. It show cased black women as individuals with the story and struggles of an individual not a stereotype to be martyred. This performance made me question the why is it surprising when someone different from you shares the same experiences of your childhood?
