Review On Black When I Was A Boy

What a great show! Cooper Bates is super talented and tells an intriguing and brutally honest tale of belonging, naivete, and American prejudice. His growth as a character and human being come through in every moment of this cultural and comedic one man show. I personally felt sad, funny, and connected during his performance, and I think historically, and artistically, Bates tells a story everyone in America should hear, see, and discuss.
