No Dream Deferred presented HBCU Theatre Summit’s keynote speech livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network on this page on Friday 14 April 2023 at 9 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC -7) / 11 a.m. CDT (New Orleans, UTC -5) / 12 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -4).

Keynote speech delivered by actor Doug Spearman (Noah’s Arc).

The Summit offers Black theatre students a chance to see our new original work productions running in rep at the André Cailloux Center. They also have the opportunity to participate in our workshops and sessions for acting, design, tech, production, writing, directing, and so much more. This year’s HBCU Theatre Summit includes a monologue showcase as well as a theatre practitioner portfolio review. These events were created to allow the students to display and share their work with their peers and other professionals.

The WE WILL DREAM: New Works Festival

The WE WILL DREAM: New Works Festival is a biennial event that locates the Bayou Road corridor of New Orleans as the national meeting place for Black playwrights originating/working in the American South to engage with compelling, artistic, intellectual, and cultural dialogue and community exploration. The festival’s goal is to serve as a bulwark of support for the professional and artistic development of Black playwrights. The virtual festival offers fourteen weeks of festival highlights from the comforts of your own home. Programming runs from 19 March through Juneteenth. The virtual festival will additionally feature special programming for Lagniappe ticket holders. By joining our Lagniappe community, you will gain exclusive access to bonus videos, interviews, and complimentary merchandise.
