Black Nativity is a soul-stirring rendition of the Christmas Story that fills the theatre with thrilling voices, exciting dance and glorious gospel music. It is a powerful retelling of the Nativity story from an African-American perspective. The original Black Nativity was written in 1961 by poet Langston Hughes. The African-American viewpoint and gospel music make Black Nativity a unique performance piece. Often adapted, this one act version of the production will take the audience from a traditional black church to an Africanized Jerusalem through dance, powerful spirituals and anthems, and toe-tapping gospel numbers.The play tells the story of Mary and Joseph’s journey through song and dance, culminating in a rousing finale surrounding the birth of Christ. The importance of the play is that, though an expression of Christian belief via the African-American perspective, the show appeals to all walks of life. Black Nativity is a well known holiday staple.
