The Mountaintop:

A Three-Part Jubilee Bringing Attention to the Black Experience in Theatre

 

February 13

 

The Climb:

EEO/Diversity Member Bliss Griffin leads roundtable discussions to address bias, institutional racism, and interpersonal racism within the industry, faced by African-American and other minority actors and theatre professionals. The program will also present and help design tools that actors can use to confront and deal with “micro-aggressions” and other challenging situations that can arise before or during a production.  We encourage people of all ethnicities and backgrounds to attend as we believe change is produced together.

The Perspective:  

In 2016 we heard beautiful untold stories. Stories that represented the African American community in new, exciting ways. The Perspective wraps up Black History Month with a Celebration of the past year’s milestone’s in African American Theatre.  We hope this event will remind us that anything is possible and leave us inspired to continue to create change in the industry. We'll be honoring and spotlighting ground-breaking productions, companies, and leaders in  our industry from the past year (Eclipsed, Shuffle Along, The Color Purple, & more).Champagne toast!
