Platanos and Collard Greens, a play based on David Lamb’s book Do Platanos Go Wit’ Collard Greens?, tells the story of two college students, Freeman, an African-American man, and Angelita, a Latino woman, both forced to confront and overcome cultural and racial prejudices, while defending their bond from the biases held by family and friends. Platanos and Collard Greens is a thought-provoking romantic comedy that tactfully addresses stereotypes, prejudices, and urban myths that exist between African Americans and Latinos, within the context of Hip-Hop, humor, and satire.
The play impels the audience to evaluate the stereotypes that pervade the American experience. Lamb displays these outrageous, viewpoints while humorously and deftly shooting them down and poetically exposing them justly as misrepresentations of reality.
Presented by the Alliance of Latin American Students (ALAS) and the Black Students League (BSL).
