This one-day event examines the movement of the Black bodies in America and the impact that movement has had in the quest for liberation. Utilizing the archives of the Schomburg Center and using multidisciplinary performance and community dialogue, NBT will commission new pieces by theater-makers of African descent to examine the works of James Baldwin, Harriet Powers,  Marcus Garvey, Harriet Tubman, and Jacob Lawrence to seek to understand the complexities Black people have faced migrating in America.
