About "Name Calling": What do most girls want to be when they grow up? A lawyer? A teacher? A Goddess?! "Name Calling", dissects the marginalization of women in their common daily encounters. From grocery shopping, to going to work, to intimate relationships with lovers, the main character is haunted by the advances, harassment and stereotypes that plague her. No one seems to know her real name, not even her closest friends. Until the day she can take no more of the rest of the world telling her who she must be, and she must decide how to fight to rename herself. The way she decides to fight surprises everyone, including herself.

Just How Black
written and performed by, Gianina Lockely
About "Just How Black?": Just how black? is an ethnoautobiographical exploration into the various definitions of blackness encountered as the performer travels throughout Africa and the U.S. This one-woman show revisits conversations that challenge, accept, and reject the notion that blackness can be defined or (inter)nationally agreed upon. Just how black? uses multimedia to examine the intersections of race, class, ethnicity and gender, and its impact on our identity.
