“5 Ways of Understanding Black Lives Matter”: Frank Leon Roberts, Cynthia Erivo, and Ledisi

Broadway stars come together August 1 at Columbia University for a night of unity and solidarity supporting the Black Lives Matter movement through artistic expression and conversation before a public audience.

According to the Broadway for Black Lives Matter Collective, “An overwhelming number of friends and colleagues in the Broadway community have expressed a deep desire to participate in an open dialogue about the social and racial justice issues that are troubling our nation. The event will bring Broadway performers together with policy reformers, educators, clergymen, public officials, and community leaders to discuss a plan of action. The evening will spark conversation and encourage people to discover their roles as active participants in a movement towards positive change.”
