Black Anthology 2023: Change Gon' Come

Saturday, February 11 | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Edison Theatre
6465 Forsyth, St. Louis, Missouri 63105

Black Anthology aims to tell stories about the Black experience. Our hope is that viewers are immersed, become a part of that experience, and are motivated to learn more. This year’s play will bring to light the struggles African Americans face in their everyday lives and in neighborhoods. We get to see firsthand generations live through a seemingly similar cycle.

There will be a preshow panel at 6:15pm each night.

Speaker Information

Marcia Hayes-Harris founded Black Anthology in 1989 to create a way to celebrate the experience and history of African Americans. She hoped that it would provide a space for Black students on campus to express themselves creatively. Now in its 32nd year, the program is still completely student-run from show art and script writing to set production and costume design. It’s amazing that so many years later, Marcia Hayes-Harris’ vision still flourishes, has a great impact on campus life, and creates a safe space for Black students at WashU.
