Moments of Truth

by The Black Underground Theatre and Arts Association
October 28

In this pivotal moment of several pandemics — a health crisis, racial injustice, economic inequality, and cultural upheaval - BUTA has gathered to ​express​ our truths as Black artists through spoken word poetry, song and visual arts and to bring attention to grassroots BLM activists.

About this Performance

From the leaders of the Black Underground Theatre and Arts Association:

This pandemic emphasized our community's shared experiences and common ground. With the current disparities in the public health system exacerbated by the devastation brought on by this pestilence, to the grotesque state of racial injustice and economic inequality, our call to action is all-encompassing. We all feel the pain associated with continued injustice, but we all have individual stories to tell.

We need to "speak our truth," and the truth is in the eye of the beholder. Each of us has our perspectives on the status quo, unique to our struggles and our state of mind. In expressing these truths to one another and the world, we need to communicate our frustration, hope, desire for change. We must do so within a context that allows us to engage with these issues with the knowledge that we will persevere.
