Black Voices Past & Present
Podcast by Steven Anthony Jones
“A Post-Election Celebration of Blackness”
Americans showed up, voted, and made sure their voices were heard on November 3rd. In an election year where representation mattered maybe more than ever, Black people said "We Matter, and We WILL be counted." Actor and former LHT Artistic Director Steven Anthony Jones is joined by Kaliswa Brewster for this post-election episode of Black Voices Past & Present, reading pieces by Margaret Walker, Larry Neal, Langston Hughes, and Mari Evans that joyfully lift up the strength, resistance, and resilience of Black people in an ode to the faith and power of Blackness.

Sweet potatoes and yams are a staple of the season, and often make their way onto Thanksgiving plates. While they may seem similar, looks can be deceiving. Read a recent post by Healthy Healing Eats to find out the differences between these delicious foods. This site is full of information about good nutritional options and delicious recipes.
We are a not-for-profit theatre. DONATIONS and support are always appreciated.
