Additional Info

Nathan Yungerberg's monologue tells of his experience going to a community discussion about Ferguson and his relation to identity as a black man being raised by white parents. Dismissal of feelings and how upbringing can change perspective fill this piece with sincerity and truth about the multititude of perspectives of the black population.
