Community Resilience:

Black History Month

FREE!

February 23rd @ 7:30 pm

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 moment.

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.
