Help Amplify the Black Voices, Artists & Spaces of the FUTURE!

Learn more about our campaign & how YOU can help champion the VISION of National Black Theatre.

An integral component of this Founder’s Month is the creation of NBT’s VISION Forward Fund. This fund is dedicated to the continued cultivation of radically free Black creativity, the archival preservation of NBT's rich history and the institution's capacity-building and technological infrastructure.

We encourage you to champion the audacious autonomy of a radically Black, free, space collectively built and forged out of Dr. Teer’s relentless Love. We invite you to dream with us as we co-create a vision of self-determination, abundance, and Black liberation through your own letters to the future. As part of this invitation, we are asking you to rally your friends, family and networks to raise funds for NBT’s VISION Forward Fund, which will help ground, fortify and imagine NBT’s mission into the next century.

  • GROUND us in our legacy, our wisdom of indigenous Black thought, and the liberators who have come before us: make a contribution to support NBT’s ability to establish our archive.
  • FORTIFY this institution at this moment and garner the resources we need to sustain this movement and vision of self-determination: make a contribution to support NBT’s staffing, capacity and technological infrastructure.
  • IMAGINE, architect, design, shape the future of this radically free space for us, together: make a contribution to support our base of artists to have the tools to dream through our residency programs.

Just as our founder did in 1968, we collectively must use this catalytic moment to reclaim our strength, reclaim our power, right now in this hour. This is work that we must do now, together, brick by brick, milestone by milestone. By starting a fundraising campaign on behalf of NBT, you will amplify Black voices, Black artists, and Black spaces, which will help invest in the rejuvenation and reclamation of who we were truly born to be for the health and wealth of our entire country.
