A Remarkable Evening Just For You

Black news from Pasadena - Arts - Pasadena Playhouse and Peter HarrisA Night Out At The Pasadena Playhouse

Peter J. Harris' new book, The Black Man of Happiness: In Pursuit of My 'Unalienable Right,' will take you on a spoken word journey filled with jazzitude that ebbs, flows, crackles and captivates while exploring his childhood in Southeast D.C. on to manhood. His work raises the question, What is a Happy Black Man? The question is thought provoking, insightful and reflective. The answers he reveals will grab you and take hold.

I first met Peter when he was a guest on the Ebony radio show that I hosted on KPCC in the 80's and 90's. His timbre, tone, and cadence produced powerful unforgettable poetry. As a result, he had an open invitation to return. I know Peter could recite the alphabet or read a recipe that will mesmerize and amaze. He is a nationally published writer, educator and well-known literary and cultural participant in Los Angeles. We have read together at the World Stage, Avenue 50 Studio, First Lit Crawl Los Angeles Festival in North Hollywood and at Centro Cultural de Tijuana (CECUT) in Mexico.
