Friday Phone Call # 68

Catalyst gathering at the National Black Theatre

Today I talk with three people involved in the Catalyst gathering at the National Black Theatre: Jonathan McCrory, Sade Lithcott, and Deadria Harrington. Evolving out of a series Jonathan curated on HowlRound about the state of Black theater, this is an exciting gathering that will have a HowlRound TV livestreaming session on Thursday, August 7 at 7:00pm EDT. These guys talk us through the specifics of the convening and then wade into some big ideas with me: about legacy, about agency, about the integration of institutional mission and personal growth. We go long here, but it was so rich I didn't want to hang up.
