Soon after an African-American businessman becomes new director of a foundation, he discovers the world-famous art collection includes several significant African sculptures tucked away in storage. His proposal to add them to the public galleries leads to heated conflict with the foundation's long-time education director, who is loyal to the idiosyncratic wishes of the museum founder. A searing examination of racial politics, this show ultimately asks what the cost is of failing to view the world through another's eyes.

*This production contains adult language and themes and is intended for mature audiences.
