About Black No More:

Black No More is a musical adaptation of George S. Schuyler’s satirical Harlem Renaissance-era novel. It’s June 1928 in New York City, and Howard University graduate Dr. Junius Crookman promotes a mysterious machine that promises to remove the burden of race from any person of color by turning them white — Crookman’s plan to “solve the American race problem.” Black No More is an examination of race, identity and the very nature of love.
