Second Sunday with Friends: Magician, Ran’D Shine

Magician Ran’D Shine: ‘I am very proud to be an African American magician’Ran’D Shine —See the magic at the Lackawanna County Children’s Library!                                                          Sponsored by the Friends of the Scranton Public Library

Magician Ran’D Shine, who has appeared on the CW’s Penn and Teller: Fool Us and has performed in over 20 countries, is determined to share the stories of black magicians. Like Henry “Box” Brown, a pre-Houdini magician who was born a slave in Virginia and shipped himself to Philadelphia (and freedom) in a crate. “I am very proud to be an African American magician,” Shine said. Philadelphia Inquirer, October 16, 2019

That’s why he has traveled extensively to Africa to mix magic with exploring his roots. The lessons he learned there are shouting to be shared.  Ran’D was also Magician of the Year in 2016 and has worked with Penn and Teller!
