Black Anthology 2022: Asifuye Mvua Imemnyeshea

Saturday, February 19, 2022 | 1:15 PM - 3:30 PM

Edison Theatre
6465 Forsyth, St. Louis, Missouri 63105

Join us for an in-person screening of the 2022 Black Anthology production (previously pre-recorded) at 6:15 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Feb. 18 and 1:15p.m.-3:30p.m. Feb. 19.  The event will include a pre-show panel and a cast talk-back at the end of the screening.

Black Anthology is dedicated to telling stories from across the Black diaspora. In keeping with that tradition, this year’s production explores issues of the diasporic divide, as well as navigating life within systems of oppression. Black Anthology is a student-written, choreographed, directed and designed production with the goal of leaving the audience wrestling with questions of their own. This year, we ask: How am I shaped by the systems (and people) around me? How does one contend with/make sense of tradition in a changing society? 

Tickets are $10.  You must be fully vaccinated to attend and the theatre will be sold at reduced capacity. There will be a free live-streamed version on Saturday, February 19 in the evening.  For more information on that experience, please sign up here.

Speaker Information


Black Anthology was founded by Marcia Hayes-Harris in 1989 to provide a means of celebrating the history and progress of African-Americans. Since its creation, the program has been completely student-run, from script to set and costume design. As Black Anthology has grown, it has evolved from performances of compilations centered on pertinent literature to a full-length scripted play featuring music and dance performances about the Black experience locally and globally. Even with the changes in show format, Black Anthology remains dedicated to its purpose, and through achieving these goals, the program continues to thrive.
