In a special LIVE panel discussion, moderator Erika Alexander (Living Single, The Cosby Show, Get out, John Lewis: Good Trouble) will be guest hosting the 100th episode of The Theatre Podcast with Alan Seales, exclusively on the Broadway Podcast Network. This panel, composed of prominent BIPOC Broadway performers, will discuss how to move forward from where we are and create an equitable, anti-racist, and safe Broadway community.

Moderator: Erika Alexander (Living Single, The Cosby Show, Get out) who most recently produced the documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble.

A roundtable discussion designed to bring to light the inequality and racist behavior towards Black people and people of color in the theatre and wider entertainment industries, presented in a way that offers an open-discussion for BIPOC performers to discuss their experiences and their hopes for the future.
