Come and celebrate the splendor of Black Broadway through the eyes of Black women – traversing through their many roles and voices on Broadway in the past, present and future. This night will highlight the moments throughout history that altered the course of Black women/femme representation on Broadway from the early 19th century to now. Current stars on and off Broadway perform songs and pieces to celebrate the many accomplishments and legacy of legends such as Lena Horne, Audra McDonald, Diahann Carroll, Juanita Hall, Heather Headley, Patina Miller, and more. Black women have contributed so much to the world of Broadway, and we’d like to celebrate those moments by paying homage to their greatness. Streaming LIVE and in person!

Produced and hosted by Malaikia “Lake” Sims-Winfrey and featuring songs from shows such as Ain’t Misbehavin’, Ragtime, The Wiz, Dreamgirls, The Color Purple, and so much more, this show is the perfect opportunity to come together to observe Women’s History Month and honor the Black women of Broadway. Featuring a cast and band of all Black women/femmes. Music direction by Marissa Joy with Jada Crawford on bass, and Debbie Yambala on drums.
