Children's Theatre Company, in collaboration with 37 other theatres nationwide, will present the virtual premiere of "A Kids Play About Racism" on Aug. 1.
The play, an adaptation of Jelani Memory's "A Kids Book About Racism," will premiere on the streaming platform Broadway on Demand.
"This show embraces the full spectrum of emotional response children may have as they navigate comprehending racism and how it may affect them," lead artist Khalia Davis says in a release.
"When I wrote A Kids Book About Racism, I wrote it from my own kids," Memory says. "I never could have imagined it would have spread so far and wide to thousands of kids all over the world or turned into a nationwide theatrical event."
