For a limited time only, the Davenport Theater will be running the play "Then Sean Met Khalid"

The play is described as a contemporary musical that tells the story of a middle-class white family who adopt a black baby, Sean White. Life seems “normal” for Sean until he comes across an interview between Sean Hannity and the late Dr. Khalid Abdul Muhammad. The characters are startlingly relatable; the scenes are uncomfortably close to home. The show tackles veiled racism and white privilege in an accessible way without preaching. The musical was inspired by scholars: Khalid Abdul Muhammad, Amos N. Wilson, Joy DeGruy, Sistah Soulja and Eduardo-Bonilla Silva. Purchase ticket here
