skin DEEP skin TIGHT

Skin Deep Skin Tight is an artistic depiction of how the painful reality of race tightly confines Black and Latinos into
spaces, that leave them with little or no room to breathe, dream, create or just be. With Skin Deep Skin Tight, Kymbali
Craig, debuts as a Director/Writer where she explores through poetic dialogue and graphic imagery the history and coping mechanism of racial inequality. A tribute
to her father, The Mis-Educated Negro but a highly self-educated black man, to The Invisible Men, The Black Boys, The
Native Sons and to all the folks who are still in the struggle striving and surviving in it all. Skin Deep Tight, is a voice of revolution filled with empathy, history and compassion for the human condition.
