In these tumultuous times of unrest and injustice, the Hamner Theater stands in solidarity with our black family and all communities of color; we remain committed to telling the stories of our community, all of them, giving voice to the voiceless and forgotten. Black lives matter. The great work continues: to amplify the voices of black artists and listen to what they say; to be aware of the systemic racism inherent in our organization and the organizations we associate with and act to dismantle it; to educate ourselves about the lives and experiences of black Americans and the history of black America and to let that knowledge power the pursuit of equity and reinvention of our world.

We can all do something; let’s all do what we can.


Every other Saturday, the Hamner hosts a virtual Community Conversation. The Community Conversations are agenda-less meetings where participants are free to talk about issues in their lives, in their communities, or in the world. Everyone is welcome, please email boomie@thehamnertheater.com for a Zoom invite!

Next Saturday Community Conversation, September 26, 2020 @ 5PM.
