Writer Statement

I met my co-creator Kenan Weaver at a open mic night in New York where I first shared my desire to turn the story of Malcolm X and Redd Foxx's relationship into a satire of American history and simultaneously bring the story of the Harlem Renaissance to life. We have reached out to the family of Malcolm X and Redd Foxx and acquired permission from the family estates, as well as the personal blessing of Malcolm X’s daughter Gamilah in the form of a signed letter of endorsement. The estates are aware that we have every intention of creating a show that honors the memory of these two giants in a hilarious, action packed and eye opening way. Kenan and I have lived our entire lives motivated and encouraged by their story and our experiences themselves are reflections of the themes highlighted in Little Red. After all, we like Malcolm and John, are two black men seeking to reinvent ourselves, armed with nothing but wit, charm and the art of the hustle. We WILL get this show done, by any means necessary...but we would love your help!
