Broadway Powerhouses Are Uniting to Support Black Lives Matter

The theater community wants to be a part of the solution.

Broadway is doing its part to support Black Lives Matter.
Audra McDonald, India.Arie, Danielle Brooks, Tituss Burgess, also from the theater community, are getting together at Columbia University on August 1 to "participate in an open dialogue about the social and racial justice issues that are troubling our nation."

Broadway has made great strides to add diversity to the stage in recent years, and the community is now using its collective voice to stand up for victims of police brutality in a meaningful way. The event will "bring Broadway performers together with policy reformers, educators, clergymen, public officials, and community leaders to discuss a plan of action," according to organizers.
The community event is free and open to the public. Click here for more information, and watch McDonald talk about her experiences as a Black woman on Broadway in our exclusive interview, above.
