All Mixed Up | Promo
When you live between two cultures, searching for your place in the world can be a journey. Harleen watches perceptions change based on the race of the man she’s dating; Mayowa asserts her Black identity, despite her light skin; and Samantha's mixed race friend shows her what life is like when assumptions are made. Three storytellers, three interpretations of ALL MIXED UP, hosted by Wes Hazard.
- [Narrator] Next time on "Stories From the Stage",
"All Mixed Up".
- And a handsome young man smiles at me.
I smile back
and then I hear my roommate say,
"Harlene, don't do that.
She uses the N word.
- As we pass this elderly gentlemen on the porch
with a shotgun on his lap,
he yelled, "Hey!
What y'all doing with that white girl?"
- I didn't understand what I had done wrong.
All I was doing was helping.
You're supposed to help.
