We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884–1915

presented by Pepperdine Theatre Department

Tuesday, September 28–Saturday, October 2, 2021

By Jackie Sibblies Drury
Nic Few, Director

In We Are Proud to Present..., a woman researches her African ancestry and attempts to tell the story of this long-lost culture with a company of actors. Three Black and three white Americans struggle to retain polite political correctness while fighting to humanize both the Herero people and their German colonizers in our current racial/political climate... What could go wrong?

This play contains profanity; recommended for ages 16+.

No late seating allowed. Join a talk back with the actors and director after the Wednesday, September 29 performance.
