I am NOT Black by Akin Wright

30 January - 4 February 2023

Temz Thomas has been asked to give a speech at his old school about how his time there shaped him into the man he is today.

While searching his old bedroom for his Blackberry from when he was in school Temz goes on a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

In this solo performance, writer Akin Wright is asking the question where do you fit in when you're ‘too white for the black kids and too white for the white kids’?

'I am not Black' is a one-man show written and performed by Akin Wright and directed by Joseph Junkere
