Legacy and Impact: African-American Theater in Cleveland

Panel Discussion with Q & A on the history of African-American Theater in Cleveland.

Leonard Bernstein strove for social justice and broke barriers throughout his career, notably by hiring African-American actors and conductors for the 1944 musical On The Town at a time when segregation pervaded American life. In celebration of Black History Month, join us for an enlightening panel discussion about race and representation in the arts, the history of African-American theater organizations in Northeast Ohio, and their impact on communities today. Moderated by author and educator
