Do you know how to be black? SMU senior Nick Cains answered that question with his debut play, “How to be Black” at the Margo Jones Theatre Friday night.

Cains, who wrote the play, said the question is open-ended and explores modern racism.

“It was kinda autobiographical; in a weird way it became my exploration into a question,” said Cains. “The question was when someone tells you ‘you’re not Black enough.”

Check out the video above to find out more about the play and how the audience reacted to controversial scenes.
