Trayvon-Martin-USE-THIS

An Initiative of The New Black Fest

In light of the murder of Trayvon Martin, The New Black Fest commissioned a diverse group of playwrights to write 10-minute plays reflecting on  the tragedy. With these plays, The New Black Fest’s wish is that serious discussion is incited in our communities around these urgent issues.

The  evening will feature the work of playwrights Dominique Morisseau, Winter Miller, Dan O’Brien with Grammy Award-Winner Quetzal Flores, Marcus Gardley, Mona Mansour and Tala Manassah, and A. Rey Pamatmat.

Readings will be followed by a discussion with the playwrights, The New  Blackfest’s Artistic Director Keith Josef Adkins, and others.

Special thanks to the Alliance Theatre (Atlanta), The Goodman Theatre (Chicago), Mark  Taper Forum (Los Angeles), National Black Theatre (New York), Lookingglass Theatre (Chicago), African Continuum Theatre (Washington D.C.), and  others, who have supported this initiative in diverse ways.
