STG's resource guide: What you can do to honor Black History Month

STG honors Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual observance founded to celebrate black achievement and give visibility to the people and organizations creating change. It is a time where people are encouraged to engage with black histories, beyond discussions of racism and slavery.

STG would not be what it is today without Black culture, art, dance, music, storytelling, scholarship, leadership, and professional expertise. As we look to the future, we will not forget our history—which includes so much to be proud of and so much to improve upon and learn from. In pursuit of our vision as "The People's Theatre," we are committed to examining, challenging, and updating our practices. This February (and all year long), we invite you to explore the list of resources below to learn more about the importance of Black History Month and celebrate our Black community.
