Presented in partnership with B.L.A.C.T ATL, Inc. (Black Leaders Advocating Cultural Theatre), Black Theatre and the Black Lives Matter Movement will center on the role of black theatre companies in shaping, influencing, and amplifying the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as the role that black theatre companies, such as New Federal Theatre and the Negro Ensemble Company, have historically played in giving a voice to civil rights and other black-related issues. Arts leader Vivian Phillips, Co-Founder of The Hansberry Project, will lead this timely Community Conversation, which is the kickoff for a new series of impactful events, called The Drinking Gourd, with The Hansberry Project.

The conversation will be streamed live through the True Colors Theatre Facebook page and YouTube Live.
