The African American student living in Miami Dade County, Florida during the 1980's – 1990’s was faced with unique challenges in a period that experienced significant cultural, social, political, economic and technological changes that impacted their learning, careers and decision-making capacity. These experiences played a major role in their adulthood.
Carol City experienced an influx of migrants primarily from the Caribbean, particularly Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, Santo Domingo and Cuba during the 1980’s. The assimilation with African Americans in middle and high school were at times turbulent and dynamic as relationships developed that resulted in shared cultural experiences and at times hostilities.
The assimilation of these culturally difference norms and behaviors are rarely captured in the experiences of Africans in the diaspora. These relationships produced the development of a unique cultural artistic climate and social dynamics that is captured in the Three Act, six scenes play.
