Writer and performer Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni sat down with WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll after a performance of “One Drop of Love,” a multimedia solo show exploring the intersections of race, class and gender in search of truth, justice and love.
Produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, the interactive show parallels the history of changing demographics in the U.S. with DiGiovanni’s own family history, traveling from the 1700s to the present.
The ultimate goal of the performance? To encourage the discussion of race and racism openly and critically, and to commit to making the world more liberated for all.
