Black is the Color of My Voice follows the fictional character Mena Bordeaux, a successful jazz singer seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father.

During a three-day period of isolation without cigarettes, alcohol, or access to the outside world, Mena reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the civil rights movement.

The play, written and performed by Apphia Campbell, is loosely inspired by the story of Nina Simone.

Running time: 70 mins (no interval)
