This festival is a three-day event (April 7-9) promoting cultural equity by showcasing the works of African-American and Latino artists. The Festival highlights artistically excellent works of emerging, underexposed, and underappreciated playwrights, dancers, filmmakers, spoken word artists, and vocal groups. Various Memphis institutions are participating. On April 8, the McCoy Theatre will host an all-day page-to-stage workshop, involving writers from the region’s HBCUs and local performers.
