Review On Black When I Was A Boy


Max Schorr

Audience


Cooper Bates puts on an excellent show: profound, funny, moving, real. Black When I Was a Boy is a coming of age story that invites an honest dialogue around race, identity, and being human in America. Highly original, enganging, and beautiful. Cooper Bates is a national treasure, and to see him perform in a small venue is a blessing. Two thumbs (way) up.
