THE BLACK BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE

Inobe is currently developing Black Beautiful: The Musical as a critical studies discussion that will travel to universities, civic centers, museums, and other cultural institutions as live edutainment. Inobe seeks to educate audiences on a brief history and the current state of the Black community while offering her creative take on steps African Americans can take to regain control of their narrative and thereby regain control of their collective future. She is adapting a one-woman show as well as a full cast production.
