Thursday arts pick: Last weekend for “Am I White”
It’s the last weekend to catch Adrienne Dawes’ riveting, trenchant play “Am I White.”
Ricocheting back and forth in time, seguing into nightmarish scenes played out as a disturbing minstrel show, “Am I White” tells the story of an imprisoned neo-Nazi convicted of plotting terrorist acts who must confront his own mixed-race heritage.
“Am I White” is based on the true story of Leo Felton, a white supremacist who hid his own mixed-race identity as the child of a short-lived idealistic Civil Rights-era marriage between a black architect and a white former nun.
“Am I White” continues through Oct. 18 at Salvage Vanguard Theater. www.salvagevanguard.com
