ONE DROP OF LOVE is a multimedia solo performance by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni that uses the ever-changing racial categories on the U.S. Census as the historical backdrop to this interactive show.

Throughout, the audience is asked to participate in defining and redefining these categories for themselves and one another. Cox DiGiovanni parallels this history with her own, and her family's search for roots, identity and for justice.

Audiences will travel from the 1700s to the present, to cities around the U.S., and to West and East Africa, to pursue more truth - leading to more justice - and then, perhaps to LOVE. Each performance will be followed by a discussion that will provide theatergoers with the opportunity to reflect on their experience and openly and critically engage about race and racism, class, gender, identity and our history.

There are four performances of "One Drop" and Cox DiGiovanni will lead a FREE, public workshop on April 28 at 10 am at Black Theatre Troupe focused on creative writing and performance.
