Chad Goller-Sojourner's solo performance "Riding in Cars with Black People & Other Newly Dangerous Acts: A Memoir in Vanishing Whiteness" is the groundbreaking and crushingly honest story of what happens when a black boy, raised by white parents, “ages out” of honorary white and suburban privilege and into a world where folklore, statistics, and conjecture deem him dangerous until proven otherwise. At times funny, biting and somber, "Riding in Cars..." takes audiences on an intense and insightful journey, along the way unpacking race, privilege and policing like only a transracial adoptee can.

There will be two shows, one at 1 p.m. and a second at 8 p.m.. Entry is FREE with valid SUNY New Paltz Student ID.
