Hard to believe our friends at The New Black Fest are about to start their third festival, but that’s exactly the case!  The festival is a collective dedicated to celebrating new voices in the theater, and kicks off with a conversation between Tony Award-winning actress Tonya Pinkins and PONY Fellow playwright Dominique Morisseau, co-presented with 651 Arts at the Classical Theater of Harlem.

All events are free and start at 7pm (except for October 13, which begins at 2pm).
