Celebrity Reading of #NWord by Christian Elder
#NWORD is a play about relationship under the spectre of racism. It begins when a video of an eight-year old white girl calling an eight-year-old Black boy the "n-word" on the school bus appears online; and the mothers of the children, Vaughn and Mack, confront one another. Accusations of racism are debated between the school administration and the parents. The conflict has an impact on each woman and their marital lives. Eventually, Mack, Vaughn, and their husbands Tom and Jake evolve past the incident and become friends. Until kernels of deceit and betrayal rise to the surface.
