Remedial Racism

Trial of One needs new life to retell old lessons about slavery

Most Americans know that slaves weren't happy and that many of the images of slaves and black Americans -- perpetuated on film and television, in literature and advertisements -- are ridiculous stereotypes. Of course, those images still affect our lives on a daily basis. A play that explores the nuances of this sad fact could be very interesting indeed.

The Trial of One Short-sighted Black Woman vs Mammy Louise and Safreeta Mae plays through March 7 at Ensemble Theatre, 3535 Main Street, (713)520-0055. $14-$19.
