What's a Playwright's Forum?
A free gathering of various individuals (i.e. dramaturgs, actors, avid/curious readers, writers, etc.) to discuss, read passages, and quarterly perform readings from plays dealing with the
African/Black Diaspora. Whereas many are not familiar with the multitude of Black Playwrights writing on the Black experience in
various regions of the world, this forum provides a platform for the discussion of those readings.
