WHO: Myriha Burton
SHOW: FAILING WITH AND “A” is a glimpse of the difficulties of attending a predominately white institution as a person of color from the inner city. It explores topics such as survivor’s guilt, questioning of religion and faith, and the goodness and evils of what is considered home. In this piece of work, Myriha Burton and Shameaca Moore use poetry, music, motion to tell the truths of so many students of color and different ways to navigate micro aggressions. While their white counterparts move through undergrad boasting their A’s on their transcripts, they are miserably failing at this thing called life. These two doesn’t want to make the same mistake.
