We at Court Theatre stand in solidarity with the artists, community members, and our South Side neighbors engaged in the struggle for justice in Chicago and across the country. Black lives, Black stories, and Black voices are essential, because they are the lives, stories, and voices of our nation. As theatremakers, we also recognize our responsibility to amplify stories of oppression in moments of injustice.
