About the event

Originally written by Langston Hughes, the show was first performed off-Broadway in 1961, and was one of the first plays written by an African- American to be staged there. Since 1970, Black Nativity has been performed annually in Boston where it has been re-imagined and profoundly stamped by National Center of Afro-American Artists (NCAAA) Artistic Director Elma Lewis, Music Director John Andrew Ross and Choreographer George Howard. In the spirit of their innovations, the show feels new every year. Please join Psi Omega Chapter and our host 38th Past President Kafi Meadows for an evening of joy, we will have a meet & greet an hour prior to the show.
