The Intersection: Woke Black Folk

The Intersection is a stage play on the complexities of Black political identity and a story about how humans navigate difference. It premiered at the Pan African Film and Arts Festival in Los Angeles as the featured theatrical production in March 2018 and has since toured internationally -- staging in venues and universities across the U.S., England, the Netherlands, France and Brazil. This one-woman show calls into question the partisanship, groupthink and lack of nuance that often inform modern political debate and discussion at large. ​As an astute observer puts it, "How does Fagbamila's staging, claiming, theorizing, and embodying of contradictory perspectives create room in an otherwise claustrophobic political landscape?”
