In Case You Missed It: The State Of Black Theatre Discussion

Last week hosted an entire week of talk about Black theatre. The week was filled with twitter discussions, interviews, and articles that targeted the development of black theatre. Anything and everything you could have thought to bring up was talked about during this time. We hope that you were able to find a place within this discussion but if not, you can find all that happened right here. Click and read away. The topic is not over and it’s never complete. Feel free to comment on the articles and join the ongoing discussion of the Black theatre movement. It’s who we are and who we’ll always be.
