Cooper's honesty as a writer is inspiring and breathtaking. As an actor, he's at total ease, with a seamless performance technique, and a fearlessness in terms of developing a character that is a master class in itself. BLACK WHEN I WAS A BOY is raw, riveting, brave, funny, smart, and universal in its theme and depiction of claiming one's own identity with pride and determination. See it--you'll be blown away.
