It’s always an honor to be recognized by Amanda Parris, an extraordinary literary artist and journalist. Her new column Black Light for CBC Arts “spotlights, champions and challenges art and popular culture that is created by Black people and/or centres Black people.”
We’re here for it, especially putting Canadian narratives on the map!
Here’s what she had to say about The Negroes Are Congregating
First of all: amazing title. Second of all: if you’re in Toronto in March, you should make time to see this play. Written by Natasha Adiyana Morris and celebrating its world premiere at Theatre Passe Muraille in March, The Negroes Are Congregating is a poetic yet scathing deep dive into racism in Canada and around the world.

You can book your tickets now, the play runs from February 29 to March 14, 2020 at Theatre Passe Muraille.
