For Southerners who have lived and struggled with the issue of race all their lives, it can be tough to see it with fresh eyes.
Sometimes you need an outsider. When it comes to race in one Southern city, Macon, Ga., playwright Mark Mobley is just that.
The play “What Color Is Your Brother?” is the product of Mobley taking his outsider's view into conversations with Macon locals on the issue of race. The project grew out of Mobley's longtime friendship with a Macon native, renown violinist Robert McDuffie.
