All American Boys: A Performance and Conversation

Join us for a performance of “All American Boys,” a production based on the award-winning book by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely that examines how two teenagers handle the consequences of racial profiling and police brutality.
The story centers on high school students Rashad and Quinn – one black, one white, both all-American boys – who are forced to confront the reality of a violent act that leaves their school and community torn apart by racial tension. Adapted for the stage by Off the Page and presented as part of our ongoing series exploring race and language, How I Got Over.
WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll hosts a conversation after the show.
