"The Arts allow people to shine through without discrimination or judgment. We're a beacon for those who seek to be heard in their authentic light."
"Feeling alone is common in the entertainment biz, but having a team around you makes you feel closer than family. Blacklight is my creative family."
New Talent Outreach Administrator
"It brings all POC together in the art of theatre! I can truly be my full self with the support of my wonderful artists around me!"
"We provide community for our POC family to step into their full authentic self without fear or judgement, so they can realize their full power and shine their light for all to see."
"Theatre is the ability it has to bring so many different walks of life together, and the things you’re able to take away from those moments."
New Talent Outreach Director
"We are a beautifully sewn artistic family that loves when it’s needed, advises when asked for, and pushes forward regardless of disenfranchisement, or circumstance. This feels like home!"
Meet the Interns
Hi! My name is Iliana Mejia, I am 16 years old and a junior in high school. When I grow up, I either would like to work in the journalism or computer science field. One thing that I pride myself on is my creativity and as an intern for BlackLight, I can use that creativity to help others, which I am excited to explore.
Hey guys! I am Zainab Gai-Baldeh, an African American whose descendants come from The Gambia in Africa. My cultural background gives me the morale to pursue my career in the performing arts. I am a very uplifting, optimistic, generous, and caring person and my goal is to learn more about the ins and outs of the arts.
