BLACK LIVES MATTER

 

“Art Is A Weapon In The Struggle Of Ideas, The Class Struggle.”  Amiri Baraka

 

Dear Friends,

First And Foremost, We Hope You And Your Families Are Healthy And Safe!

Hudson Theatre Works Is Heartbroken And Outraged Over The Murder Of George Floyd After The Deaths Of Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor, And Ahmaud Arbery, And How These Acts Reveal The Depth Of Systemic Racism That Still Exists In This Country.

 

At Hudson Theatre Works, We Attempt To Present Theatre That Speaks To The Humanity In All Of Us. Theatre At Its Very Core Is A Collaborative Art That Affirms Our Commitment To Empathy And Of Finding Ways Of Working Together.

 

But When Once Again When We See The Public Murder Of An African American, Saying The Right Thing Is Not Enough. We Change The World By Changing Ourselves And That Means We Have To Continually Commit To Meeting That Challenge Personally, Artistically, And Institutionally.

 

We Can't Afford To Normalize This Moment And Let It Pass As Another Repetition. We Consider It Our Duty To Remain Committed To Social Justice. We Need To Act.
