What I liked

I loved the stories themselves, the scenes, the situations, the characters and the dialogue. And I loved Cooper’s embodying the different people in his life, as he is now truely a product of all of their characters.

What I didn't like

The lighting cues could have been smoothed out in a few moments

My overall impression

This was a unique and incredible story perforned by an equally unique and incredible talent. It brought to life one child’s personal journey through racism while growing up and finding his stride. I really loved this performance and only wished it was longer!
