Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole Invites you to view Blacks in Wax 2020

Dear NCNW Family,

I am obsessed with something that I hope is also preoccupying your mind. Namely, the critical need for us to do all that we can to make sure that African American women and men are registered and will vote in record numbers.

If for any reason you are not obsessed with this task, you will be after you watch the attached performance of Blacks in Wax 2020. Over the years I have been deeply impressed by the talent, knowledge and theatrical ability of the young people who present the annual Blacks in Wax performances. However, I have no words that can adequately capture the brilliance and the power of this year’s performance. 

A huge thank you to our NCNW Sister, Former First Lady Cora Masters Barry, for all that she does to mentor and support the Blacks in Wax performers. And warm and hearty congratulations to the Black in Wax 2020 performers who beautifully exemplify what Lorraine Hansberry meant when she paid tribute to those among us who are young, gifted and Black.
