For the first time in Chicago, Literature for All of Us is teaming up with Author, Actor, and Activist Michael Fosberg (WLS)

For the first time in Chicago, Literature for All of Us is teaming up with Author, Actor, and Activist Michael Fosberg for a one-day event highlighting race in America.

Fosberg, after growing up in a middle-class white family, discovered in his mid-30s that his biological father was African American. "Incognito: An American Odyssey of Race and Self-Discovery," his autobiographical book and acclaimed one-man play, confronts the issues of prejudice, diversity, heritage and family through his revelatory journey.

On Oct. 25, Fosberg will hold a special performance beginning at 2 p.m. at The Riaz H. Waraich Auditorium at the SLC Building in Chicago. All proceeds will benefit Literature for All of Us, which uses a book group model to create readers, writers and critical thinkers in some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods of Chicago and Evanston.

Fosberg joined ABC7 Eyewitness News to talk about his experiences and his upcoming performance.
