Set in the period immediately following World War I, Color Me Dark follows the Love family in their flight to Chicago from a racially rocky Tennessee town and the Klansmen who killed their uncle. Upon arriving in the Windy City, the Loves discover that prejudice isn't limited by geography or skin color. But as they deal with tensions in their new city, the Loves find they can conquer all. 3 p.m. Show runs through February 19.
