Young Nerds of Color

Hiding in plain sight in the science labs, grappling over civilization’s greatest challenges are Young Nerds of Color.

Some speak with the poetry of wise sages, others subvert the establishment with renegade ways, and, finally, there are rock stars whose ideas flow like jazz improvisation – all changing the world like a bolt of lightning illuminating the night sky.

If knowledge is power, their powers make them superheroes.

Playwright Melinda Lopez weaves together over 60 interviews with scientists from the most underrepresented backgrounds – with original music by Nona Hendryx – amplifying the rich harmonies, breaking down boundaries and showing us what is possible.

Arranged by playwright Melinda Lopez.

Directed by Des Bennett.
