The human mind responds more powerfully to narrative than data, history, or the news, and BRTW exists to bridge art and activism into a powerful medium that can stimulate and direct action. Its current membership includes Sheyenne Javonne Brown, Jovan Davis, Mieko Gavia, Kevin Green, and Heather Harvey. As BRTW’s work is dedicated to identifying injustice and exploring possible avenues for correction, BRTW’s management attempts to dismantle traditional aspects of hierarchy and disenfranchisement within our industry. Each member is a valued artist, intellect, administrator, and co-owner. Founded shortly after the massacre at Mother Emanuel AME, BRTW places a premium on presenting honest, intersectional Black identities couched within themes recognizable to our audience. Following every performance, we host a discussion with each audience, identifying the themes, narrative relationship to current events and history, and correctable patterns of injustice. Our artistic and ethical vision is to be a key force in the effort to create, produce, and demand conscious and critical media.
