How I Got Over: ‘One Drop of Love’ Performance and Conversation
How I Got Over
Originally Aired: Thursday, April 6, 2017
Join us for a special presentation of “One Drop of Love,” a multimedia solo performance that explores the intersections of race, class and gender in search of truth, justice and love.
Written and performed by Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni and produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon the interactive show parallels the history of changing demographics in the U.S. with DiGiovanni’s own family history, traveling from the 1700s to the present.
The ultimate goal of the performance is to encourage the discussion of race and racism openly and critically, and to commit to making the world more liberated for all.
WNYC editor Rebecca Carroll hosts a post-performance conversation with DiGiovanni as part of The Greene Space’s ongoing How I Got Over series.

About How I Got Over series:
Join us for a new project reinventing language around race through a series of conversations and performances that explore, express and examine what it means when a social construct becomes the social order. We want people to get personal. We want provocative dialogue. We want to generate new language to execute real change. We want to talk about fear – and how it’s different if you are black or white. We want to hear people explore racism.
Discover and watch previous conversations with Ethan Hawke, Kristin Davis, Ezra Edelman, Jacqueline Woodson and Daniel José Older, and LaToya Ruby Frazier, Carrie Mae Weems and Sarah Lewis.
