MULATTO Series: ONE WOMAN; TWO RACES, JULIETTE FAIRLEY’S ONE WOMAN SHOW

On October 25, the LBCAA sponsored and John Malveaux organized a theatrical fundraiser, MULATTO Series, at the Found Theatre as a fundraiser for the Long Beach Public Library. ONE WOMAN; TWO RACES, JULIETTE FAIRLEY’S ONE WOMAN SHOW,
“Mulatto Series”, is two shows in one performance. “Mulatto’s Dilemma” chronicles the adventures of a bi-racial woman living in the 1920s and her indecision whether to marry a black man or white man.

“The Making of a Mulatto” presents issues relevant to interracial marriages and their children by juxtaposing the Jim Crow South in American with the Nazi regime in France. She wrote two shows to give audiences a peek into how having parents of different races influences an adult child’s psychology and perspective on the world. “Many bi-racial people are caught in between two worlds, tormented by allegiances to both the black community and the larger white society. My show explores these issues,” said Miss Fairley.
