The Black Conference Touring Company is a cooperative of performing artists engaging audiences through interactiveperformances designed to empower communities to take collective action.
Black Conference is a 360◦ theater experience set in 1939, during the opening ceremonies of a civil rights conference. It is an immersive theater experience that brings guests face to face with some of the civil rights greats.
Actors will perform an excerpt from the play, highlighting speeches from Black leaders that were deeply rooted and helped create African American cooperatives throughout the United States. This is not to be missed.
