WORLD CLASS ART IN THE HEART OF BED-STUY

The AUDELCO and Obie Award-winning Billie Holiday Theatre is artistic anchor to the largest African American community in the nation: Central Brooklyn and one of the last remaining theaters forged in the aesthetic and sociocultural kiln of America’s Civil Rights/Black Arts Movements.

OUR STORY

OF BLACK THEATRES FOUNDED OUT OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS/BLACK ARTS MOVEMENTS DIDN’T EXIST BY THE MID-90S.

FOUNDATIONS GIVE $4 BILLION DOLLARS TO ARTS ORGANIZATIONS, BUT ONLY 4% OF THAT FUNDING GOES TO ARTS ORGANIZATIONS THAT SERVE COMMUNITIES OF THE GLOBAL MAJORITY.

EVERY DOLLAR YOU DONATE ELEVATES THE CRITICAL VOICES OF BLACK ARTISTS, AND THE STORIES OF OUR COMPLEX JOURNEY TOWARD FREEDOM, A JOURNEY THAT IS FAR FROM OVER.
