How You Can Support RIGHT NOW

Black Theatre Matters is a program of Plowshares Theatre Company. We appreciate every gift of support we receive regardless of the amount. You can support our work by clicking on this link HERE.

There are lots of ways to support for greater equity and inclusion on our stages. You can donate money to a local, grassroots organization. You can join a protest, if you feel you can do so safely. You can educate yourself and, if you are white, talk to other white people about racial justice and equity. But one of the most direct and sustainable ways to support the Black community is to shop at Black-owned businesses, many of which have also been disproportionally affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Here at Black Theatre Matters, we’ve created a directory of over 70 Black Theatre-related groups you can support in six different categories: producing companies, presenting organizations, ensembles, play festivals, writers’ groups and solo artists. We acknowledge that this list is far from complete, but we will continue to update and add more national and international organizations moving forward. If you want to jump to a specific category, use the links below.
