The voices and visions of our artists, writers, poets, playwrights, and educators are far from watered down. Black Power Theatre promotes creativity and expression that's raw and unfiltered; creativity that can only be expressed through the hearts and souls of a diverse group from the diaspora.

Larry Neal, a scholar of African-American theater and contributor to the Black Arts Movement (1960s-1970s) wrote: "Black Art is the aesthetic and spiritual sister of the Black Power concept...The Black Arts and the Black Power concept both relates broadly to the Afro-American's desire for self-determination and nationhood."

During that important era, artists sought to create politically engaged work that explored the cultural and historical experience and transform the way African-Americans were portrayed in literature and in all areas of then Arts.

Black Power Theatre will continue that charge!

We invite you to participate in the the theater's many workshops, check out our seminars, gain knowledge, skills that will turn your talents into a sustainable profession. At Black Power Theatre you will meet and vibe with creative brothers and sisters of like-minds.
