Presented by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, this free, interactive community event is the second in their “Arts For Action: Black Voices” series of community dialogues.

Moderated by Neki Mohan, an adjunct professor at Barry University who served as a broadcast journalist at WPLG for 16 years, this special event will explore the gap between education and employment opportunities in the arts and creative industries and offer insights into how we can begin to close that gap for communities of color in South Florida.

A dynamic panel of four experts with diverse experiences in the arts will examine the issue and take comments from the audience in the theater and watching online via Zoom.

Panelist Portia Dunkley is co-founder and executive director of the New Canon Chamber Collective, a non-profit chamber music ensemble offering performance opportunities for Black and Latinx musicians. FLO’etry Entertainment & QUICK2Love Foundation CEO Jerris “QUICKthePoet” Evans will also discuss the issue from his viewpoint as a performer and producer.

The panel also includes artists and academics Gregory Reed, photographer, multimedia producer and a former adjunct professor at American Intercontinental University, and Director of Miami Jazz Co-op Nicole Yarling, a vocalist and violinist who has taught at Florida Memorial University and University of Miami.

The yearlong Arts For Action: Black Voices initiative explores how the arts and artists can be a force for change in addressing critical issues of social justice and racial inequality.

Seating is limited and must be reserved at www.browardcenter.org/tickets/rsvp-arts-for-action. Those wishing to attend via zoom must register in advance at https://bit.ly/3ysrdzt

2021 marks 20 years since Michael Richards’ tragic passing at the age of 38 in the attacks on September 11, 2001. To honor this anniversary, Richards’ cousin Dawn Dale and “Michael Richards: Are You Down?” co-curators Alex Fialho and Melissa Levin will be in dialogue with filmmaker, visual artist, and curator Tiona Nekkia McClodden to discuss the ongoing work of stewarding artists’ legacies. Dale has stored and cared for Richards’ artworks for two decades since Richards’ passing; Fialho and Levin have been engaged with curating Richards’ art since 2016; and McClodden has worked with the estates and archives of artists Brad Johnson, Essex Hemphill and Julius Eastman. Together, their conversation will consider the ongoing work of uplifting underknown Black artists, familial care for those who have passed, and amplifying Richards’ artistic practice in the wake of September 11.

Island City Stage, creating quality professional theatrical experiences focused on the LGBT+ community for a universal audience, will host their very own Behind the Red Curtain community forum entitled “Law Enforcement and the LGBT+ Community – Where are we today?” on Tuesday, September 14, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at its theatre (2304 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors). This presentation coincides with the kickoff of Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 Season with The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson this October. This true-story scandalous period drama chronicling the 1914 Long Beach sex scandal launched the theatre company’s award-winning decade-long run.

This free, public event will review the advancements of South Florida law enforcement in how they interact with the LGBT+ community and promote diversity and inclusion, internally. Guest panelists will include Lieutenant Paul Auerbach of Broward Sheriff’s Office, Assistant Chief of Police Darren Brodsky of Wilton Manors Police Department, Captain Michael Dodson of Fort Lauderdale Police Department, FAU Professor Emeritus and author Fred Fejes, PhD. and Trans Advocate Kat Rio. This forum is supported by Equality Florida and the GLBX Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.

The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson runs from October 1 – 31, 2021. Viewers will become engaged in this true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants” in public restrooms. Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California.

Behind the Red Curtain is a free public forum. Guests may attend in-person or participate virtually. Registration is required by visiting islandcitystage.org.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season will also feature Armature by Andrew Kramer from January 27 – February 27, 2022; Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams from March 17 – April 17, 2022; The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam from June 9 – July 10, 2022; and One In Two by Donja R. Love from August 4 – September 4, 2022.
