The Roll Call

By Metrograph

Last week, as part of our ongoing Authentic Selves: The Beauty Within curated by Anthony Roth Costanzo, we welcomed the National Black Theater to 7 Ludlow where they showcased NBT shorts films by Dane Figueroa Edidi, Lavender Freddy, and Ngozi Anyanwu, anchored by the premiere of NBT’s Executive Artistic Director Jonathan McCrory’s The Roll Call: The Roots to Strange Fruit. The screening was followed by an inspiring conversation among McCrory, NBT CEO Sade Lythcott, and activist/author DeRay Mckesson.
