The Greenbelt Arts Center Board of Directors is saddened by the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the long list of many other Black and People of Color who have died as a result of systemic racial injustices in our country. We stand with all those who speak out against injustice and abuse of power, and who seek to reform the systems that have made racism so rampant in our world.
We want to do better. We must do better. We will do better. We are striving to educate ourselves as individuals and as an organization, and we are here to listen and learn from the voices that have been too long silenced and vow to help amplify them to the world.
We acknowledge and support all of the People of Color who have (and have not yet) graced our stage and our theatre. We have historically chosen to stage productions that reflect the rainbow of diverse experiences in our community, and we know that we can still do better. We will do better.
