Center-Stage: The Social Performance Issue

“If you’re a young person of color in America, you’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about how your life is different from that of others, just because of the color of your skin or where your family is from. Whether that’s in the ways that you interact with other people, think of your own life, or understand the community around you, there’s just something about being not white in a super white country that forces us to think about ourselves. Some might call it self-absorbed, but here at Center-Stage, we think that it’s hella important to put ourselves in the center of conversations, especially about issues that affect us and especially in a country where it is so easy to talk about Black and Brown people without ever actually including us.”
