A tapestry that explores the intricacies of life through the unique lens of Black men comes to life in The Happening: A Theatrical Mixtape, Volume IV: Black Like He, written and directed by Darius V. Daughtry and featuring some of South Florida’s finest talent.
One of South Florida’s best-known poets, authors, directors and educators, Daughtry weaves together poetry, music and dance to highlight simple moments and complex emotions and revealing a universal humanity. “The Happening: A Theatrical, Volume IV: Black Like He is a journey filled with joy, struggle, love and truth,” Daughtry said.
