Free Presentation of the 2022 AfroSolo Arts Festival to Take Place This Weekend

AfroSolo Theatre Company presents its 27th annual AfroSolo Arts Festival STANDING OUR GROUND! The series continues with a line-up of talented artists on the Potrero Stage Theater Saturday, May 7 @ 8pm and Sunday, May 8 @ 3pm (Pacific Time) featuring: Bianca Brown, Darlene Roberts, Toni Hines and Eric Ward.

The 2022 AfroSolo Arts Festival theme of STANDING OUR GROUND! came about due to the wave of ultra-conservative radicalism sweeping the country, a backlash once considered settled has come under attack. Whether Civil Rights, voting rights, one's right to choose, marriage equality, and the continuing quest to end police brutality challenge us to make a stand or Stand Our Ground to make the United States an equitable place to live. This series helps showcase the diverse artists who contribute their talent to make Black Voices heard.

The 2022 AfroSolo Arts Festival is presented as part of PlayGrounds Potrero Stage Presenting Program! All performances will be available both in-person and via live streaming.
