Black Nativity is an uplifting, soul-stirring, roof-raising musical celebration of the Christmas story. Written by legendary poet, playwright and social activist Langston Hughes in 1961, Black Nativity is a gospel song play that tells the Christmas story through gospel song, poetry and dance. It is an uplifting experience the entire family can enjoy. Like large family gatherings, this count-your-blessings evening plays out with contagious spontaneity and joyous imperfection.
