Check All That Apply is not a performance.
It is a story circle.
It is a study on community building.
It is not instructional.
It is a workshop for interrogating, understanding, & reinterpreting our mixed-race identities.
It is not about exclusion or comparison.
It is a reclaiming of the bits of our histories that are often erased.
It is an expression of anger, frustration, acceptance, & love.
