From Colored To Black

980 Liberty Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15222 United States


Come through the Backyard BBQ!

This Juneteenth Weekend, share your story and be a part of the process that will culminate in a new multi-media play, utilizing arts and culture to engage the Pittsburgh community in critical dialogue around how systemic racism is directly connected to the health and wellness outcomes in the Black community.

Exploring the intersections between public health education, oral history performance, and community arts activism, From Colored to Black communicates health data, historical research, and the lived experience of the Black community to the public. Through community-based participatory research methods, and a partnership between the DEMASKUS Theater Collective (DTC), EnterChange Group, and the University of Florida’s Center for Arts in Medicine, DTC will innovate the existing multi-modal play From Colored to Black molding it to mirror Pittsburgh’s illustrious history.

Schedule of Events:
1:00pm | Screening of From Colored to Black with light refreshments to follow
3:00pm | Community Story Circles
4:30pm | BBQ buffet in Café
