When is racism funny? When veteran comedian, actor, writer, filmmaker and San Francisco radio host Donald E. Lacy Jr. uses a unique blend of comedy, personal experience and drama to examine the social ill of racism and its imposing influence on his early life. "Colorstruck" examines the differences and misunderstandings that lead to racism. It is the poignant story of how a light-skinned African-American is treated and, sometimes, ridiculed by darker-skinned black people. Lacy, an SF State alum, returns to campus to perform this critically acclaimed one-man show, in celebration of African American History Month and in honor of longtime Professors Wade Nobles, Raye Richardson, Richard King and Oba T'Shaka. Presented by Associated Students Performing Arts, College of Ethnic Studies and College of Creative Arts.
