Must-See Play Auction Block to Hip Hop Performed at Webster University
Webster University’s Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs present a must-see play straight from New York City, “Auction Block to Hip Hop.” This riveting play will be performed on Wednesday, February 10 at 8 p.m. in the Winifred Moore Auditorium, 470 E. Lockwood Ave. This event is free and open to the public.
“Auction Block to Hip Hop” follows multi-platinum Hip Hop mogul, Set Fo’ Life, through the journey of a lifetime as he is visited by three ghosts who show him the strengths of his past. Starting from the beginning days of slavery, through apartheid and going into the Obama presidency, Set Fo’ relives the turning points in African-American history. He eventually finds himself at a crossroads, where he must choose whether or not to buy into the system that degrades black women and perpetuates black stereotypes or choose to be on the outside and fight the power.
One audience member raved, "I have been to many plays throughout my life, on Broadway, off Broadway, way off Broadway, uptown, downtown, and I have never seen a play as powerful as ‘Auction Block to Hip Hop.’"
