I would like to let you know about a presentation sponsored by the Greensboro Opera. It is a 45-minute opera called Driving While Black, and it will be performed live in 4 different venues in Greensboro. It features one singer, a percussionist and a cellist. The story is told in an intimate way, and both the instrumentalists are also involved in the drama. After the performance there will be a discussion of the issues with a panel and audience input.

dwb (driving while black), by composer Susan Kander and librettist Roberta Gumbel, is a montage of poetic and haunting moments examining the trials and triumphs Black mothers experience as their children come of age in a society plagued by racism and inequality.
