The Future of Democracy Ep. 15: Nurturing the seed: Cultivating equity and resilience in Black theatre
Though the events of 2020 have cast a spotlight on systemic racism, Black theater has long been making art in context of racial inequity — and working to dismantle it. On Episode 15 of DISCOVERY, we’ll talk with Gary Anderson, producing artistic director of Plowshares Theatre Company in Detroit. Anderson is also a co-founder of Black Seed — a new, unprecedented national initiative addressing historic inequities in theater by fostering growth and sustainability for Black theater organizations. We’ll discuss why it’s important to remake theater for an equitable future beyond COVID-19 — and how to do it.
