Black lives matter.

I, Bess Welden, share the following letter because I have supported white fragility and supremacy in U.S. theater. I have been seen doing so by the community of Black, Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) theatermakers, and I see myself and my actions in this letter. I share this to amplify the voices of BIPOC artists and administrators in our field, and to hold myself accountable to my actions.
