The Chicago Sun-Times says:
"Based on the national bestseller, RACE uncovers the true thoughts and emotions of ordinary Americans, both black and white, about this
country's most explosive issue. We see bus drivers, college students,civil rights workers, Klansmen, doctors, interracial couples and many
more struggling with their feelings on affirmative action, drugs,prejudice, and dashed hopes, revealing attitudes that few are willing
to admit in public. Featuring an interracial ensemble of nine actors,RACE reveals the opinions of your friends and neighbors â€“ and perhaps
you â€“ regarding the "American obsession."
"A culminating work of pain, wisdom and, dare we say it, hope."
