Support history in the making!

Holy Ground is a documentary film celebrating the legacy of the National Black Theatre Festival®  (NBTF) and its founder Larry Leon Hamlin, “Mr. Marvtastic.” The film features interviews with Black Theatre legends, groundbreaking performances, archival NBTF footage, and a behind-the-scenes look at NC Black Rep, while shining a light on the birthplace of NBTF, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the City of Arts and Innovation. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Ka’ramuu Kush, Holy Ground promises to be one of the most entertaining and culturally significant films in in the history of Black Theatre.

NC Black Rep’s online fundraising campaign to support post-production costs for Holy Ground runs from January 13 – July 31, 2020. Help NC Black Rep bring this groundbreaking documentary to life by making a donation today!
