Arts & Dialogue: Shaina Lynn’s Bayou Blues

February 24, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

Bayou Blues dives deep into the consciousness of a black girl’s pursuit to find air amidst the drowning waves of colorism in New Orleans. Shaina Lynn takes the audience through the alluring culture of Mardi Gras, Bounce music and second line parades to shine light on the city’s dark history of internalized racism. With spoken word, song, dance and rap she shares her story, based on true-life experiences. A tale of transformation and healing for all, Lynn’s powerful one-woman show questions the current impact of colonialism and race on communities of color. Discover more here.
