SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING TUESDAY APR 27, 2021

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT) is pleased to reinvigorate its WBTT Voices program with a special offering, “Telling Our Stories in the Black Theatre,” on May 4. In conjunction with WBTT’s new production of Dominique Morisseau’s play, “Pipeline,” renowned journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault will facilitate a panel discussion via Zoom with Morisseau, WBTT Founder and Artistic Director Nate Jacobs, and “Pipeline” director L. Peter Callender. "At WBTT, our focus continues to be on the African-American experience and topics,” said WBTT executive director Julie Leach. “As our country continues to grapple with the highly-charged issue of racial inequality, and as WBTT presents Morisseau’s ‘Pipeline,’ a story that takes a hard look at the future prospects of the angry young Black son of the lead character, it’s more important than ever that Black stories have a place to be told, heard, and valued.”
