Call Me by My Rightful Nameby Michael Shurtleff
An honest, moving and courageous drama set in the early 1960s about two Columbia students rooming together in New York: Doug, a white, rebellious, young man; and Paul, an African-American. When the two disagree on their defi-nitions of love, a fight ensues, forcing a girl�the object of disagreement�to act as peacemaker. The shame and misconceptions of both young men are explored with devastating honesty. As the characters grapple to understand each other, their highly individualized sense of humor and gift of laughter are revealed, as well as their sensitivity to the topics of the day.
