The Day I Became Black
Biracial Bill Posley grew up happily identifying as both black & white. But at 10 yrs old he learns the world does in fact judge a book by its color, & even though he's half white, he's labeled 100% black. Does a young comedian have to get rid of his whiteness, to be the color he's supposed to be?!


In the modern day conversation about race, this is a perspective that never gets talked about: what it means to be biracial and grow up in a white world. Being biracial means that your identity is on trial." You dont look like either side of your family so you wind up feeling like you are on an island all your own. Black people want you to claim being black and white people, well, they just want to touch your hair. You think you have to choose, but society has already chosen for you.

The Day I Became Black tackles themes in society, not just through a Black lens, but through a Biracial one as well. Multi-racial people are growing three times faster than the population as a whole, not to mention people who come from different religious/political backgrounds and people who have gender identity issues. Weve all been forced to identify at one time or another, or worse, feel like a fraud trying to identify with more than one group. This show finds the comedy in the struggle of trying to fit in and trying to just be yourself.
