    An autobiographical solo show written and performed by LYNN MANNING about the senseless shooting that left him blind at age 23 and his subsequent efforts to rebuild his life. "WEIGHTS" is a powerful solo event that utilizes prose, poetry and music to tell the inspiring real-life story of Lynn Manning. Raised in impoverished South Central Los Angeles, Mr. Manning was a budding visual artist with virtually everything to look forward to. But in October 1978, a drug-crazed thug decided to settle a petty dispute with a gun and shot Mr. Manning in the head, taking away his sight forever at the age of 23. The show traces Mr. Manning's ultimate transcendence of the senseless violence that changed his life and his courageous personal journey from "being black to being blind."
