Scripted in Black, a multi-disciplinary creative collective, was founded in 2017 by Dayton native and Theatre Creative Dana Graham.
Scripted in Black gained its name through the idea of black being the result of the mixing of all the colors on a spectrum. We are wanting to create a safe and thriving platform that sheds light to the narratives and experience of all the shades of people of color creatives.
The WOC Reading Series was introduced as the collective's first installment. This intimate + performative reading series features works from local WOC writers and playwrights which center around the Black and Brown womanhood experience while highlighting different perspectives and celebrating the magic within the everyday stories of Black and Brown women. This series has created community and sisterhood in a liberated safe space through the art of theatre and writing.
