Black Theatre Night History

  • Black theatre performances, originated in 2019 with Jeremy O. Harris’ Broadway hit Slave Play.
  • Black theatre performances have since spread to theaters in Boston, London, D.C, Philadelphia, and now Bristol, PA

“It’s not a ‘blacks only’ theatre performance, it’s an affinity night for black audience members to rectify the decades of exclusion from theaters in their communities. This is not segregation but an attempt at radically integrating a theatre-going audience that is underserved.”
– Jeremy O. Harris
