A message from Jackie Taylor,

The mission of the 43-year-old Black Ensemble Theater (BE) is to eradicate racism. Through our award-winning productions that have a cross-cultural audience of more than 55,000 people a year, to our educational outreach programs that serve more than 10,000 inner-city youth annually, BE is dedicated to helping create a world that is free and healed from the devastating disease of racism. With the turmoil and bigotry that is disrupting our country today, we hope that you will support our vital mission.

A world without racism might sound impossible, but together we can make that world a reality. Will it happen overnight? Absolutely not, but we will never achieve it if we don’t work toward it. Black Ensemble Theater has been working towards it for 43 years, and we remain steadfast and committed to getting the work done.

Black Ensemble Theater is offering you the opportunity to help us with our work. We’re asking you to become a sponsor of our annual Gala, The Legacy Continues: Together, We Are The Change on October 18, 2019 at the beautiful Venue West in Chicago.  The annual Gala is Black Ensemble’s major fundraiser of the year, and we offer our sponsors vast exposure and marketing opportunities. There are many ways to support Black Ensemble Theater, with sponsorship levels ranging from $2,500 to $50,000 or you can purchase an individual ticket.

Your support of the Black Ensemble Theater reflects that you are doing something to help move our world forward to a better place of positivity, acceptance, and understanding. Please partner with the Black Ensemble Theater in our fight against racism and become a sponsor of our annual gala.
