THE ELEPHANT GOWN

THE ELEPHANT GOWN

Trauma is his reality.

From his eleven-year-old perspective, a young boy from Harlem is faced with the trauma of being black in America. The figure in the elephant gown (the elephant in the room) taunts him to show that he is unsafe once he leaves his Nana's house, which represents life outside of the home for all BIPOC children growing up in The United States of America.
