This play provides an insightful look at the modern African diaspora in Minnesota.

The surprising appearance of a charming, magical African leads a modern interracial couple to a better understanding and appreciation of the experience of immigrants to Minnesota from Liberia, Ethiopia, and Somalia and helps them consider how to connect with and celebrate everyone's heritage.

This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota

State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and culture heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008.
