  • Overview
    The Colored Museum is a series of eleven short scenes with no intermission. Each scene is titled and self-contained, a separate “exhibit” in a museum that illuminates what it means to be African American in the United States during the 1980’s. A few of the scenes feature two or more actors speaking to one another, but in many of them the characters speak directly to the audience. The beginning takes place on an airplane which is traveling through time. The airplane visits different museum exhibits, each of which displays a different event or lifestyle in different parts of the country during different eras of the African-American experience.
