As each generation takes the baton from the previous generation, new heights will be reached. Sadly, many of the achievements of our forefathers get washed away as the years pass on. We discuss how to honor and preserve the accomplishments of past generations while carving out new territory for 21st Century African American men. These conversations are the springboard for the themes and issues presented in the plays we produce. Hosted by Associate Artistic Director, Jamil Jude, the conversations bring subject matter experts and the community together for 90 minutes of sharing and learning.

SHE GRIOTS

2019 – 2020 SEASON

This season, True Colors will celebrate black women storytellers–those who maintain and move our culture forward! Each play in the 2019-2020 season will be written by black women or feature all-black women cast.  “She Griots” is a celebration of black women who uphold our family traditions. These women are our sisters, aunts, and mothers who share stories of strength and empowerment, instilling in us our history, informing us of who we are, and encouraging change and success for the future.
