WE SPEAK FOR THE UNHEARD VOICES
“An Artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.”
WHAT WE DO
Black Lives, Black Words aims to explore the black diaspora experiences in some of the largest multicultural cities in the world, Chicago, Minneapolis, Charlotte, Baltimore, DC, London, UK and more to investigate the question ‘Do black lives matter today?’ This initiative is committed to giving Black Playwrights control of their own narratives and building a global discussion throughout the diaspora.
Black Lives, Black Words works with college students to empower them to become future activists and arts leaders by providing them the tools to produce, direct, and write works that speak on the Black Diasporic experience.
