We are pleased to announce the fifth annual New Black Fest at The Lark! CONNECT’s Co-executive director,  Quentin Walcott, will speak on the kick-off panel for the festival along with Keith Josef Adkins, Keith A. Beauchamp, C.A. Johnson, and Dominique Morisseau.
 
This week-long, April 9-13, 2018,  event is aimed at showcasing diverse and provocative work in a festival of Black theater artists from throughout the Diaspora, and will feature talkbacks, a panel event, and staged readings of four plays-in-progress.
 
The theme of this year’s festival, Black Love, Black Space, and Solidarity, was conceived by Keith Josef Adkins, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of The New Black Fest, in response to the world’s continued shifting. The festival will kick off with a panel discussion on this theme, moderated by Adkins, and featuring Keith A. Beauchamp (Filmmaker, The Untold Story of Emmet Louis Till), C.A. Johnson(Playwright), Dominique Morisseau (Playwright, TV Writer, Actor, and Social Justice Activist), and CONNECT NYC’s Quentin Walcott (anti-violence activist, educator, and facilitator).
