Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is multifaceted—to stimulate social and cultural consciousness through the production and presentation of message-oriented theatre and films, and to help children and youth develop into responsible citizens through affordable theatre arts. Black Spectrum's primary programs goals are:

  • To create theatre and film productions targeting issues in the African-American community, particularly topics relevant to youth.
  • To provide children, youth, and adults with life skills and artistic experience through training in theatre and film.
  • To bring theatre, film, and performing arts to southeastern Queens and underserved communities nationwide.
  • To highlight emerging African-American directors, playwrights, performers, and designers.
