Fund for Black Theatre in the U.S.

"Black Theatre is alive and vibrant; however, Black Theatre is not funded."

- August Wilson 1996

Black Lives Matter. This is a fact that must be affirmed. The artistic representation of Black life on stage, also matters.
Black Theatre needs funding.
Black Theatre has the power to educate, elevate, and emancipate, but it needs funding.
This fund will help. It is a giant step in the right direction. It will make a difference, if you make a difference.
Artists who dedicate themselves to this challenging work, deserve an opportunity to succeed.

When actor Margo Hall said, "We need a GoFundMe for Black Theatre", we went into and the Juneteenth Theatre Project, inspired by Project 1 Voice, was created. We created a committee, in collaboration with the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre, to distribute the proceeds of this fund to Black Theatres.
