WE MUST TELL OUR STORIES!
The last 18 months have been difficult for so many. As a Black arts organization, we are tirelessly committed to keeping Black theatre alive. The fight is real, but we are here to win. Sometimes things happen and we are forced to make changes to keep going.
Unfortunately, DeKalb County, after making a public announcement of a June reopening, has just notified us that the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center will be closed until 2022.
We are angry, disappointed, and frustrated, but we've been here before. The struggle for Black arts organizations is so real on so many levels. We are so sorry for all the inconvenience this will cost/cause you and us.
In spite of it all, we're still winning! We have secured the new venue and we are determined to tell our stories. Absolutely nothing is going to stop us from celebrating 10 years of Black theatre excellence, your support, and the artists' contributions that made the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival a world brand!
THANKS TO YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING!
