“Color-Blind” is a two-act play that “depicts the subtle, yet profound, dilemmas that contemporary multiracial couples face when introducing their relationships to families with entrenched racial prejudices,” according to the play’s description.
“Color-Blind,” which is ironically titled, shows how this age-old problem still lingers in modern societies where not everyone is desensitized to color.
The play tells the story of a young multiracial couple. “Sakwaya, an American-born African, has just received a marriage proposal and intends to introduce her white fiancé Jake to her family. With hopes of a bright future, Jake meets Sakwaya’s family only to find that they harbor deeply rooted racial ideals forced upon them by experience.
