Resources to support learning about racial sensitivity
Socially and politically constructed, whiteness is not simply referring to skin color but is an ideology that reinforces power at the expense of others and strengthens systems of oppression. Let’s dig deeper.
Why Us, Why Now?
Since the opening, we have been dedicated to providing a safe place where people of color feel safe and equal as artists and employees in our non-profit. We celebrate the talents of all of our performers, recognizing that black performers are treated poorly in the performing industry. We are proud to lead the way in changing Euro-dominated and white-dominated narrative to include the voices and history of black people. We offer opportunity and enjoy changing stories that to include the talents of performers of color. We have an opportunity to educate our audiences and fellow artists in why we make the choices we do, and how they, too, can be inclusive.
