About Black Nativity
This story was adapted from Langston Hughes. The “Black Nativity” originated in 1961 and was performed off-Broadway by Langston Hughes. The modified celebration of the birth of Jesus exhibits more than just another Christmas production. The spirited performance is presented with a taste of African American flavor.
“Black Nativity” articulates not only the story of Jesus’ birth but also the splendiferous sound of Gospel music! The production is filled with impactful sounds of music, praise and worship, song and dance, bursts of energetic, astounding costuming and prophetic storytelling!
About Cincinnati Black Theatre Company
Cincinnati Black Theatre Company was officially formed as a result of successfully producing the Midwest Regional Black Theatre Festival in 1998 and 2000, which it continues to produce biennially at venues throughout Greater Cincinnati and surrounding areas. Since CBTC gained its 501(c)(3) non-profit status on November 20, 2001, it has enlightened over one million people throughout the Tri-State region and beyond about the wealth and value found in African American theatre, culture and history.
People of all cultural, ethnic, socio-economic backgrounds and ages are invited to participate and attend. CBTC programs and activities cover Greater Cincinnati and the Tri-State region and serves children and adults from diverse populations, the majority being a broad cross-section of African Americans, with an educational focus on disadvantaged youth, ages 4 – 21, from typically under-served communities.
