One Drop of Love, a multimedia one-woman show exploring the intersections of race, class and gender in search of truth, justice and LOVE comes to the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown November 4 and 5, the center announced.
One Drop of Love is written and performed by Massachusetts native Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni. This extraordinary one-woman show produced by Cox DiGiovanni, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, incorporates filmed images, photographs and animation to tell the story of how the notion of ‘race’ came to be in the United States and how it affects our most intimate relationships.
A moving memoir, One Drop of Love takes audiences from the 1700s to the present, to cities all over the U.S. and to West and East Africa, where Fanshen and her father spent time in search of their ‘racial’ roots. The ultimate goal of the show is to encourage everyone to discuss ‘race’ and racism openly and critically.
Over 300 students from Watertown Public Schools will be attending a matinee performance on November 4th.
One Drop of Love is proudly sponsored by Watertown Savings Bank.
