The Schomburg Center is proud to present an evening with cast members McKinley Belcher III, Khris Davis, and Clarke Peters from Lincoln Center Theater’s upcoming play, The Royale. Written by Marco Ramirez and directed by Rachel Chavkin, the play is inspired by the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion.

Set in 1905, The Royale follows Jay “The Sport” Jackson as he faces his opponents – and confronts his demons – and exposes the troublesome events in his life that have propelled him into the ring with a burning desire to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
