About the Event
An iconic and vibrant musical, The Wiz, is where the yellow brick road becomes a metaphorical passage to self-discovery and belonging. As Dorothy navigates the magical land of Oz, her quest for ‘home’ becomes a profound exploration of identity, culture, and the essence of being. Earth Mama, another gem within the series, delves into the intimate stories of everyday life, highlighting the resilience, joy, and interconnectedness of Black communities. With a promise of more compelling narratives in 2024, the Love Overflowing series pays homage to the Black aesthetic, unveiling a tapestry of emotions, history, and creativity that resonates universally while celebrating the unique expression of Black culture on screen.
