Based on his memoir of the same name, Michael Fosberg's Incognito: An American Odyssey of Race and Self Discovery, is a one-man play that uses the prism of Fosberg's unique experiences to start a challenging dialogue about race relations. Since 2001, Fosberg has appeared in a number of media outlets and honed his presentation, influencing the way that corporate structures think about diversity within their own organizations. Part of Aurora's Black History Month celebrations, Incognito is a presentation unlike any other. Visit the City of Aurora's events calendar for more information about the play, as well as a number of other ways to honor Black History Month.
