For more information regarding Black Lives Black Words International Project:
Black Lives, Black Words was started because we felt there needed to be an opportunity for Black Playwrights to speak out against the sins committed in this world inflicted upon black bodies: Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Rekia Boyd, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, and the countless many others.
Bringing together local Black artists and having them work with directors of color to speak against the injustices in an unfiltered way and to speak directly to the communities that they are connected to. Which results in raw, urgent and exciting new writing that was socially and politically tied to the Black Lives Matter discussions.
