On Monday, February 12, Chemeketa welcomes Triangle Productions! as they present a short play and artist discussion “Blue-Eyed Black Boy”.

In light of recent violent acts against people of color, the collaborating professional artists of Triangle Productions! are sharing four one-act anti-lynching plays written between 1916 and 1934 in the Portland-metro area.

Chemeketa was chosen as one venue.

The goals of these plays is to elicit a greater understanding of yesterday’s events relating to today’s environment.

A powerful play presented as a stage reading, “Blue-Eyed Black Boy” tells the story of Pauline Waters who fears for her son Jack when he’s arrested for brushing up against a white woman on the street.
