July 30 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Float Like a Butterfly

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, Sarasota, FL

An homage to heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali, who took a stand against injustice. As an American icon, he proved he could “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” – far beyond the boxing ring. Written by Michael Jacobs. Directed by Nate Jacobs. Performed by Darius Autry. (Larry Leon Hamlin Solo Performance Series, General Audience)

From Birmingham to Broadway

Auntie Pat Productions, New York, NY

A snapshot of Nell Carter’s career, demonstrating the determination this nontraditional Black woman possessed despite the odds against her. Faced with early tragedy, Carter’s refusal to give up on her dreams and her buoyant, larger-than-life onstage persona have left a lasting legacy. Written and performed by Tarra Conner Jones. Directed by Nate Jacobs. (Larry Leon Hamlin Solo Performance Series, General Audience)
