|Spices: A Collection of Monologues and Poems by Black Artists, will be performed live on Zoom Sunday afternoon, September 13th at 2:00 pm. This production, created and directed by Jacqueline Youm, features monologues from a variety of plays written by Black playwrights and performed by Black actors. These monologues will be interspersed with selections from the writings of Black poets, read by Ms. Youm. The program presents a focused vehicle for these writers to tell their stories, to highlight their experiences, and to do this in their own voices.|

Nessa Amherst: selections from plays by Jackie Sibblies Drury and Suzan-Lori ParksMarvin Bowser: selections from writings of Lorraine Hansberry and August WilsonPatricia Dugueye: selections from plays by Winsome Pinnock and Douglas Turner Ward Andrae Goodnight: selections from plays by James Baldwin and August WilsonYvonne Paretzky: selections from writings by Lynn Nottage and Alice WalkerVincent Stovall: selections from plays by James Baldwin and August Wilson
