One Drop of Love with Fanshen Cox

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$20

One Drop of Love; One-woman performance by Fanshen Cox. One Drop 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. Fanshen 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.

The award-winning playwright, actor, producer & educator, FanshenCox DiGiovanni is currently touring her one-woman show: One Drop of Love. Fanshen is also Head of Strategic Outreach at Pearl Street Films. She served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa and holds a BA in Spanish & Education, an MA in TESOL, and an MFA in Acting and Performance. She serves on the boards of Mixed Roots Stories, The Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, and Project Greenlight Digital Studios. Fanshen is also a co-author of the Inclusion Rider which was announced at the 2018 Oscar awards by Frances McDormand.
