Colorline is a series of interviews and performances created by Marianne Evans-Lombe, Mia Wright, and Dr. Rodney L. Clark to examine racial segregation in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Colorline is a four-part project.

1. There are interviews with members of the Tulsa community, asking how the community feels about the color line and racial segregation of this city.

2. There is a Readers Theatre directed by Dr. Rodney L. Clark using excerpts from the interviews. This performance will be black and white actors, replicating the color line in Tulsa.

3. There is a poetry performance created by Mia Wright using black and white poets replicating the color line in Tulsa, and also recreating in space the formation of Robert Lax's poem "black/black/white/white."

4. There is a street performance created by Marianne Evans-Lombe, with eight white artists as 'steppers' and eight artists of color as 'rollers.' The performance will take place at the intersection of North Greenwood Avenue and East Archer Street.

The performances will take place the first three Sundays in May 2016.

On Sunday, May 22 @4pm in the intersection of North Greenwood Avenue and East Archer Street, eight artists of color and eight white artists will perform Colorline, a dance that will replicate Tulsa's color line and its impact, leaving traces in the street and on the heart.

To close the intersection, I need to raise $358 for the insurance policy and $500 for the barricade company. On Friday, May 20, I will pick up 36 road signs, 72 legs, and 72 sand bags and place them according to Colorline's Traffic Control Plan. On Saturday, I will recover, and on Sunday I will dance.

So far, I have only been able to raise a bit over $1000 for Colorline. The production costs are far more than that. If you can, please support this project.
