"Passing" is inspired by the true story of Minerva Roulhac, born in 1885 in Florida and orphaned at five. She was adopted by a former slave and raised as black, although she was very light skinned in a close-knit African American community. Her brother, Jordon ran away and decided to pass for white. Minerva raised eight children (all college-educated) and lived to be nearly 100 years old. "Passing" confronts issues of race, identity, ethnicity, complexion, class and interracial relationships.
“Passing” stars actress Mayowa Lisa Reynolds, a dancer, choreographer, educator,
community activist and Associate Minister at Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, who uses the performing arts as her vehicle to promote awareness, unity, cultural pride and personal excellence for young people. This is the story of her choice.
