“The Stories of Us” is a collection of stories that dig deep into intercultural conflict between African-Americans and Latinos, African diaspora identity and Afro-Latinidad. Think of it as a scrapbook of experiences, histories and feelings on the stage.

Written by recent University of Texas graduate and author of the blog “Black Girl, Latin World,” Jelisa Jay Robinson, the play hopes to open a rich dialogue about the importance of acceptance, solidarity and love.

Details: 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday through May 8. $12-$20. Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 River St.teatrovivo.org.
