Title VII

Schedule

Friday, Nov. 10 at 7:00pm
Tivoli Theatre

She’s powerful, black, and female. But at her firm, blacks need not apply. The highly successful Hillary Kelsey (Chicava Honeychild) is the CEO of Sanger International, an IT consulting firm. Kelsey is a black woman with no black employees, and no one can figure out why — until Darryl Montgomery (Fidel Vicioso) arrives at the firm for a morning interview and kicks off an unbelievably awful day that reminds Hillary of her “place” in a racially charged society. The events of “Title VII” — which include the efforts to land a pending account that could determine the future of a company and the machinations of a mystery man determined to turn Hillary’s world upside down — vividly illustrate how same-race discrimination can not only ruin a company but also destroy lives. Director Nicole Franklin is a native of St. Louis.
