The Gene Frankel Theater has decided to kick off Black History Month with Nathan James’ GROWING PAINS…in dedication to one of the productions the theater is famous for, The Blacks.  Directed by Gene Frankel and written by Jean Genet, The Blacks was the longest-running Off-Broadway non-musical of the 1960’s.  The legendary cast included James Earl Jones, Roscoe Lee Browne, Louis Gossett, Jr., Cicely Tyson, Godfrey Cambridge, Maya Angelou, and Charles Gordone.   
GROWING PAINS:

Through fictional characters and personal experiences 
growing up around gang violence and the drug trade in 
Pittsburgh, Nathan James’ one man show, Growing Pains, 
uses monologues, poetry, and movement to challenge
society’s perception of the African American male.  It takes 
a first-hand look at how rap videos, media, and environment 
have all played a part in the desensitization process 
of black males, turning them into one-dimensional entities.

Starting my resolutions and planning for them as well. Let no one criticize how you bring in your New Year. It is yours and yours only. Even if you break your plans 1 week in, there is nothing wrong with at least giving it a try. Those who criticize people’s attempts to better themselves, are really just people who are scared to try and want everyone else to feel the same. Failing to try is the ultimate failure.

"Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t…you’re right"

Zoom Feeling a great sense of pride to be compensated for my work and put into the archives of the Schomburg Center of Harlem (the beginning focal point of the #HarlemRenaissance).  My work now sits in the same resting spot of all of the legendary Harlem Renaissance writers that have defined our culture as we know it today. What a way to start my holiday vacation. 👍😀 (at New York Public Library - Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture)

racist stereotypes towards blacks treats u favorably in that sense, because white women want to have a romp in the sack with their beastly black man, while the black woman is stereotyped as ghetto and angry and annoying. you need to decolonize ur mind and learn to truly love ur blackness and black community again. Pretty sad.

Asked by Anonymous

The scenario you painted is from the 90’s and not representative of today. I didn’t write anything bad or deplorable about black women. I wrote the truth. And it seems that black men can be ripped to shreds all day and we can all be lumped into a stereotype an no one cares. It’s probably hard to see the double standard if you aren’t a black man. In this day and age of “Scandal” and white men and black women constantly together on tv and newspaper ads…it’s become the latest “it thing”…something that’s cute and progressive. Where as, a black man dating a white women (because of the historical implications) is still taboo. People may not like it, but it cannot be invalidated.

Zoom My heart is heavy as a remember back on my trip to South Africa and my tour of #RobbenIsland.  As I stood in front of Mandela’s jail cell, a heavy feeling started to weigh down my heart and shoulders.  I couldn’t believe how one man could have so much determination, hope, and resolve (especially hearing the stories from a previous prisoner about the HORRIBLE things that were done to them). I am so glad I got to experience this, and I am reaching inside of myself to draw from the strength I felt as I sat down on that island and wrote a poem.  Rest in peace #NelsonMandela #Madiba  (at South Africa)
