About the company

National Black Theatre

About:

National Black Theatre [NBT] was founded in 1968 in the heart of Harlem by the late Dr. Barbara Ann Teer, an award winning, visionary artist and entrepreneur. With a distinguished history of innovative work in its community, NBT is among the oldest Black Theaters in the country, and among the longest owned and operated by a woman of color. NBT is also a pioneer as the first to establish revenue generating Black art complex located at 2031 5th Avenue in Harlem, NY. NBT's core mission remains the same today as it was at the time of its founding, to produce transformational theatrical experiences that enhance African-American cultural identity by telling authentic stories of the Black experience.
