“Interference” explores the rift between Africans and African Americans and the obstacles we face in standing together. It is a piece that explores how we envy and eye the other until we step into each other’s shoes and realize how similar we truly are, and how each side has its scars, beauty marks, painful histories, and perseverance in breaking through obstacles. At that moment, we can turn our attention to the source of our discord and break the barriers that keep us down. We either reinforce each other, together, or we cancel each other out: divided.
