THE CASUALTIES OF NEED

(3F, 3M)

When Shane, a 26-year old biracial woman is forced to deal with the deportation of her estranged Trinidadian father, Tela, she has to confront the idea that some of the anger she has towards Tela has less to do with WHO he is but WHAT he is, black. Her realization about her father’s blackness causes her to examine the blackness in herself and an internalized racism she had yet to consciously identify.
