THE SABLE SERIES: The History of Black Shakespearean Actors stars the award winning classical actors and singers Tauriq Jenkins, Debra Ann Byrd and Julius Hollingsworth as they pay tribute to three Shakespearean actors who left an indelible mark on the American Theatre and even filled the houses of many international theatres as well.

THE LEGACY CONTINUES! … The evening’s special performance of poetry and song features the work of Paul Laurence Dunbar with monologues and scenes from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Antony & Cleopatra, Richard III, and Othello, along with moving spirituals and the songs of Paul Robeson.
