Description

Blasian Narratives is a multi-media “Docu-Theatre” project that explores the intersectional identities of mixed-race Black & Asian individuals through an integrated live performance and film screening. The project began as a collaboration between Morehouse and Spelman College students documenting peoples of mixed Afro-Asian heritage, colloquially known as “Blasians.” Illustrating the complex relationships between two historically polarized communities of color, this grassroots project aims to develop identity awareness and build solidarity.

Film subjects will be present to perform live excerpts in conversation with the film.
