We at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston commit ourselves to the dismantling of systemic racism—both in our organization and in the greater community.
We need to talk.
With our children.
With our leaders.
And with each other.
And we need to act.
With our resources:
With our selves:
- 5 Ways to Show Up for Racial Justice Today
- 75 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice
- Campaign Zero
And with art:
- Fires in the Mirror by Anna Deavere Smith
- Facing Our Truth: 10-Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race, and Privilege ft. Dominique Morisseau, A. Rey Pamatmat, Winter Miller, Dan O’Brien, Mona Mansour & Tala Manassah, and Marcus Gardley
- Stick Fly by Lydia R. Diamond
We see you.
We hear you.
We say their names.
We stand with you.
We fight together with you.
