MST’s Community Resilience program commemorates Black
History Month with a panel discussion about race and theatre,
Tuesday, February 23, from 7:30-8:30pm.
Black History Month began as Black History Week in 1926. In 1970,
after the great Civil Rights campaigns of the 40s, 50s, and 60s, the
United States began celebrating Black History Month.
Now, 95 years after the first week was celebrated—in the wake of mass
social protests against police brutality and white supremacy, in the
aftermath of an attempted coup that threatened our Democracy, and in
the midst of a world health pandemic that has shuttered the
performing arts and put most performers out of work—we gather to
discuss the significance of Black History Month in our current
Please join MST in welcoming a panel of distinguished Black theatre
artists as they discuss what Black History Month means to them, their
hopes, fears, and dreams for our country in general and the performing
arts in particular, and their vision for a way forward as we look to
re-open theaters and perform again.
