SUPPORT Blackboard!

Help Blackboard continue by pledging monthly support on Patreon!

No amount is too small and your support means the world to us!  A great way to take a look at what we have been doing over the years is to check out our Newsletter Archives!  In addition to our website, our newsletter archives give you a sense of our history.

Patreon is a unique crowdfunding platform for artists who are consistently creating to obtain consistent support from their fans and supporters!

Over the last 13 years, the most we have really asked for is $10 at the door, a suggested donation that keeps us minimally afloat.  We have brought you monthly features and community nights and now because of a generous donation we were able to upgrade our website.

But there’s more….

  1. A Podcast: Playwright Conversations
  2. Day Retreats for Writer-Parents with Childcare
  3. Monthly Readings: Blackboard @ the cell

Covid-19 has changed the world and the American Theatre Landscape forever.  Blackboard has never left, we have always been looking at how to grow and SUSTAIN ourselves as a space for BLACK PLAYWRIGHTS.  Over the past couple months, we have been working hard to get a few other programs in place and your monthly support on patreon will helps us continue our monthly series on Zoom (while Social Distancing is still in effect), where we hope (with your support) to be able to offer the actors, directors and playwrights who give their time, a little something in return.

We have wanted to create a podcast for years and began by interviewing some of your favorite writers back in 2015. We recorded 3 episodes, but hope to bring this work to you in a new format in 2021.  

… and your support on Patreon will not go unrecognized…
