Respect Your Elders

This coming January Theatre Communications Group is launching a video series honoring founding leaders of theatres of color in the U.S.

This from the TCG site:

TCG is pleased to launch the Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project (LLCVP). Working with MOPED Productions, and with support from Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, TCG filmed a series of interviews chronicling the stories of founding leaders of theatres of color. A Launch video featuring all nine leaders has now been made available above, and the full online roll-out of videos will begin in January 2017. This will be followed by screening events in the leaders’ communities to further celebrate their legacies and galvanize support for their enduring impact.

The nine leaders featured in the videos are: Lou Bellamy, Penumbra Theatre, St Paul, MN; Tisa Chang, Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, New York, NY; Frank Chin, Asian American Theater Company, San Francisco, CA; Miriam Colón, Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, New York, NY; Woodie King, Jr., New Federal Theatre, New York, NY; Muriel Miguel, Spiderwoman Theater, New York, NY; Jackie Taylor, Black Ensemble Theater, Chicago, IL; Luis Valdez, El Teatro Campesino, San Juan Baptista, CA; and Douglas Turner Ward, Negro Ensemble Company, New York, NY. For questions about the LLCVP, email Elena Chang.
