Queen Mary's Roundtable

Written and Directed by Yao Kahlil Newkirk, this short play, Queen Mary's Roundtable, is based on a real life hero in Black History, Mary B. Talbert, also the great, great, great aunt of Yao Kahlil. In this production Mary's life as a civil right's activist is juxtaposed to that of an activist in 2020, almost 100 years after Talbert's final works. It ends during the time of George Floyd's execution and is followed by a talkback with audience members/participants.

Dressing

Dressing, by Mona Mansour, and Talah Manasseh is based on question of whether or not clothing makes a difference for hoe Black Americans are treated. Here, a mother is trying to convince her Black son to wear the button-up-the-front shirts, instead of the tee shirt and hoodie he insists is "cool." This piece is exceptional for all ages, especially school systems and educators alike.
