The DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival
The Negroes Are Congregating reverberates loose conversations amongst friends, tension in between lovers, stern warnings from a parent to a child, spiritual awakening of a saved wretch. This contemporary piece digs into the internal racism of the North American Black experience through spoken word, satire, and familiar dialect. Audiences are interactively engaged with the fluidity of stances about what it means to be Black and proud. It's bubbling, haunting, and 100% unapologetic.
