For this week's #TheaterCrushThursday, we are focusing not on a specific company but uplifiting the collective black #tctheater community. Thanks to MPR News for rounding up this list of black-owned arts organizations, all of whom needed our help anyway, but especially need our support (and our dollars) now.
It can be easy to forget just how lucky we are here in the Twin Cities to have so many independent black-run companies. That is *not* a common thing in other major U.S. cities, and that's a diversity we treasure and want to preserve.
I can confidently say that many of these organizations count among the favorite local arts organizations for our bloggers, and we want to see them stick around for many more years to come. Please click through to find some you love (and some new to you!) to donate some money today as part of your anti-racism work. And if you have stories to share about your favorite black-run companies, we'd love to hear them in the comments below!
