Today and every day, the Academy of Music Theatre is committed to supporting our community and taking actions toward increased racial equity and inclusion.
We support our Black community, partners, collaborators, artists, promoters and fellow citizens who are speaking out against racism. We hope that together we can achieve a deeper understanding of racism and its impacts, and create a better, stronger and more just world. We need to listen more. We need to do more to uproot racism.
The arts have always been an agent for change and protest with the ability to shine the light on injustice. In the months ahead, we will take action by adding voices for change to our stage, to our programs, and in our institutional policies.
“I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear. I mean, really, no fear.” Nina Simone
