A creativity that can only be expressed through the hearts and souls of a diverse group from the diaspora.
Larry Neal, 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 related broadly to the Afro-American's desire for self-determination and nationhood."
Artist sought to create politically engaged work that explored the cultural and historical experience and transform the way African-Americans were portrayed in literature and the arts. Black Power Theatre, Inc. will continue that charge!
