The New Black Fest 2018

The New Black Fest is back!  We're, once again, raising the last round of funds for our annual festival at the Lark in NYC!  We're thrilled to bring you another week of provocative and important playwrights and plays from the Diaspora.  And, of course, our annual Kick-Off panel that promises to be one of our bests.  The theme of this year's festival, "Black Love, Black Spaces and Solidarity," was conceived after a creative think tank with some of our community's smartest thinkers were brought together and asked,  "What do you think is the most pressing thing within the global Black community in 2018?" The playwrights, plays and panelists will be announced soon. We hope you can support us. We really need you! On behalf of The New Black Fest team, I thank you in advance. -Keith Josef Adkins, Artistic Director and Co-Founder
