Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for theatre, created the Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project (LLCVP) over a two-year period. TCG filmed a series of interviews chronicling the stories of founding leaders of theatres of color.
The interviews in the film reveal how these leaders were inspired to create opportunities lacking for artists of color; to challenge appropriation and misrepresentation through staging the full richness and complexity of racial, ethnic and cultural identities; to gain political power and creative autonomy; and to contribute their unique aesthetic and social perspectives to our culture. The LLCVP will serve as a road map for future theatre leaders and raise broader cultural awareness of the impact of theatres of color
