USF World - Calendar Event Details
Title: ULS presents: Platanos and Collard Greens
Date: Thu. Mar 26, 2009
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Description: The Latin American Student Association along with the Black Student Union, Sigma Lambda Gamma, Phi Beta Sigma, Sigma Lambda Beta, and the University Lecture Series is bringing a play to the MSC Oval Center called "Platanos and Collard Greens" on March 26th. The romantic comedy addresses stereotypes, prejudices and urban myths that exist between African Americans and Latinos, within the context of Hip-Hop, humor, and satire. The play impels the audience to evaluate pervasive stereotypes. "Platanos and Collard Greens" humorously displays these common, yet outrageous, viewpoints while deftly shooting them down and poetically exposing them as misrepresentations of reality. Written by David Lamb and directed by Summer Hill Seven, this play tells the story of two college students, Freeman, an African-American man and Angelita, a Latino woman, both forced to confront and overcome cultural and racial prejudices while defending their bond from the biases held by family and friends. Admission to the event is free for USF students with a valid USF ID, alumni/faculty tickets are $5 with valid ID and the general public tickets are $10. To purchase tickets, please go to the Ticketmaster booth in the Marshall Student Center (MSC).
