True Colors Theatre Sankofa Seasons: "Sankofa Bird" by Aaron Henderson

SANKOFA SEASONS

“Go Back and Get It”

Inspired by the legacies of foundational Black theaters and their trailblazing leaders, True Colors seeks to continue in their legacies as we prepare to positively affect the future of the American Theatre. Over the next three years, True Colors is committing to revisiting their histories and uplifting the Black storytellers that have guided us to this moment. Similarly, we commit to birthing new Black narratives that will have a lasting impact on the way future communities understand and celebrate themselves. This idea, returning to retrieve information from our past, is best understood in the concept of Sankofa.
