What does it mean to be African and living in the United States?
ALW is currently requesting written monologues from people of African descent in America to be filmed for Black History Month 2014. African Like We: An American Experience (ALW) seeks to raise awareness of the nuances in the African community by showcasing a range of its perspectives in monologue form.From the personal to political, dramatic to the comedic, ALW will solicit, select, film and air fourteen (14) different monologues from various writers across the country, which will be performed by professional actors.
We hope to edutain viewers about the context and continuity of being of African descent in today’s America by giving voice to the plurality of its experiences. Please join us in lending your words, perspective, and network to support this community education project.
