What I liked

This was just a superb show. Shanara Sanders delivers a stellar 60 minutes and really brings you into her world, a world far too familiar for people of color, and a world far too unfamiliar to white people. Shanara tells some heartbreaking stories but also works in some hilarious humor, highlighting some issues in our culture that need to be addressed. As far as solo shows go, this is about as good as they get. It never fell into the trap of self indulgence (as many unfortunately do) and instead hooked you the entire time because of Shanara’s gift for storytelling, her amazing poetry, and her focus on important relatable issues. This is a must see and if it gets an extension (if it doesn’t it’s a crime) you must check it out.

My overall impression

A confronting, insightful, upsetting, educational, funny, and important show courtesy of a gifted storyteller with buckets of charisma, talent and charm.
