BLACK NATIVITY: A Tradition of Love and Light

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

by Langston Hughes
Directed by Lou Bellamy
Musical Direction by Sanford Moore
Choreography by Uri Sands

Penumbra’s treasured holiday tradition returns with a focus on compassion, connection, and community. Civil Rights leader and theologian Dr. Howard Thurman suggested that “the work of Christmas” begins after we return to our everyday lives. This work is “to find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild the nations, to bring peace among brothers, to make music in the heart.” What makes your heart sing? How will you dedicate your energies during the New Year? This Christmas, the most radical expression of love is justice. Be the light.
