Making Space on the Great White Way: An Homage to Black Trailblazers of Theater & Performance

February 19, 12:15 pm2 pm.

(New York) In celebration of Black History Month, Broadway luminaries Natasha Yvette Williams (“Some Like It Hot”), Q. Smith (“Come From Away”) and Will Mann (“Hades Town” National Touring Company) will take part in “Making Space on the Great White Way: An Homage to Black Trailblazers of Theater & Performance” on Sunday, February 19, at 12:15 p.m., at Marble Collegiate Church, 1 W. 29th Street at Fifth Avenue.

The latest installment of Marble’s Racial Justice Series will pay tribute to the Black actors, composers and playwrights who have made countless contributions to Broadway’s signature style and aesthetic, yet for many years, were not given the opportunity to perform on America’s premiere stage.

“Marble’s racial justice ministry began in 2020, not long after George Floyd’s murder,” says Rev. Rashad McPherson, Associate in Music and Ministry at Marble. “This event represents our ongoing commitment to doing the work of anti-racism in our congregation and community. This event will be interdisciplinary in that the brilliant artists featured will combine dialogue, storytelling and performance.”

The event is free, welcome to all and will be streamed live at marblechurch.org.
