WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Black Nativity features a choir uniting singers from Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (AME), Dixwell Avenue United Church of Christ, Immanuel Baptist Church, Mt. Zion Seventh Day Adventist Church, St. Luke's Episcopal, Varick AME Zion Church, and the Unity Boys Choir. This joyous event tells the powerful story of the birth of Jesus through rousing Gospel music and inspiring poetry of celebrated African-American writer Langston Hughes. Sarah Peterson directs, with musical direction by Jonathan Q. Berryman.
