Black Theatre United (BTU) announces the postponement of our inaugural Gala to 2023, due to scheduling conflicts. A new date will be announced shortly for a star-studded event that will include a concert featuring performances by America’s most sought-after Black Broadway and theater talent and honor trailblazing leaders in Black theatre who are inspiring the next generation of Black theatre professionals. Ahead of the Gala, BTU has partnered with Charitybuzz, the leading impact marketplace for once-in-a-lifetime experiences, for an exclusive fundraising auction, now live at charitybuzz.com/BTU. Auction items include dinner with BTU Founders Vanessa Williams and Norm Lewis, a tennis lesson with John McEnroe and more. An additional special sweepstakes for an ultimate, one-of-a-kind, week-long Broadway experience will launch at the end of September. Proceeds will support BTU’s empowering programs in Mentorships, Student Internships, BTU’s Annual Advocacy Summit and BTU’s Education program.
