These North High readings+discussion are an answer to the amazing and overwhelming demand for the January reading+discussion at Water Bar & Public Studio.


"Angry Black Woman and Well-Intentioned White Girl" Is a thought-provoking, performative conversation between Amoke Kubat and Jennifer Johnson, as friends and professionals; and ongoing public discussions with Black women and White women across Minnesota. And now MEN, whose invisible presence is hardly an absence, are joining this conversation.

In this play, Amoke and Jen "GO THERE!" by expressing the daily "unsaids" between black and white women. These accusations and silences reflect our miseducation about each other - the superficial and deep conflicts around our womanhood, ethnicities, rights, power, and constant juxtaposition of roles in the politics of white male patriarchy.

Angry Black Woman and Well-Intentioned White Girl goes deep into those hidden, dehumanizing narratives, through storytelling and audience participation. This nontraditional work reflects Amoke Kubat’s journey through the painful landscape of "Minnesota Nice," the gentrification of North Minneapolis and work spaces, and awkward interracial intersections with white women.

The performance will be followed by facilitated discussion groups.
