Actor, Writer To Perform One-Man Show 'Black' In Tempe

Michael Washington Brown is from London. By way of Jamaica and Barbados. And he’s Black, which is the name of his one-man show, which he’s bringing to the Tempe Center for the Arts tonight and tomorrow night.

In it, he plays four characters: one each from the U.S., England, Jamaica and Africa. Each describes their perspective and what their life has been, surrounded by the word, “black.”

Brown joins me.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
