District of Comedy: The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle

7/21/2018 at 6:00 PM

IN THE ATRIUM

“New Negro” is a term popularized during the Harlem Renaissance to imply an outspoken intellectual departure from long-standing racist ideology and institutions. Imagine if you will a world where alternative comedians are black and black comedians do alternative comedy. Have you fallen down a rabbit hole entering a world of mayhem and absurdity? No. You’ve just found yourself in an era when black people are actively redefining “black people.” So sit back and enjoy while we welcome you...to the New Negroes.

This program contains mature themes and strong language.

Free general admission tickets will be distributed in the Atrium lobby starting at approximately 5:00 p.m., up to two tickets per person.

Presented as part of the District of Comedy Festival.
