Milwaukee’s newest holiday favorite, Black Nativity is a heartwarming and moving gospel song play by Langston Hughes.
Black Nativity by Langston Hughes | Directed by Malkia Stampley
This family friendly classic is a retelling of the beloved Christmas Story through a combination of scripture, African American poetry, dance, and song.
“Black Nativity is an opportunity to use our recent stories to represent the storytellers, our neighbors, leaders, future leaders, everyday working folks, activists, warriors, and friends who desire to tell the good news of hope. These same people have stories of those who have overcome all odds to be the light and catalyst for change in their communities” says Director Malkia Stampley.
Featuring a talented local cast, this year’s production is presented by Bronzeville Arts Ensemble, and features choreographer Christopher Gilbert, and music direction by Antoine Reynolds.
