American Menu by Don Wilson Glenn; Directed by Robert Alford and Angelique Feaster EvansIn celebration of Black History Month, The Drama Club at LSU Shreveport in partnership with Mahogany Ensemble Theatre presents American Menu by Don Wilson Glenn. The production will run February 20, 21 & 22, 2020, at the LSU Shreveport University Theatre, 1 University Place, Shreveport LA.

American Menu concerns five black restaurant workers in the kitchen of a “whites only” Texas diner. It's May 1968, between the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F.
