Kellen "Klassik" Abston

Karl Iglesias

An electric celebration of the intersection of culture and identity

An elementary school history lesson on Rosa Parks ignites a Latino’s search for his connection to American history—and his place in his own family as an aspiring artist.  Part play, part concert, and all heartfelt journey of self-discovery, this one-of-a-kind theater experience featuring Milwaukee natives Karl Iglesias and 2020 Milwaukee Arts Board Artist of the Year Kellen “Klassik” Abston blends hip-hop and spoken word poetry with a live score into an inspiring exploration of what it means to be an American.
