RESET is a new digital collection featuring historical resources, excerpts, and video performances curated by Nicole M. Brewer, Faedra Chatard Carpenter, Jordan Ealey, Kristen Jackson, Leticia Ridley, and Nikkole Salter.
The curators—six Black cisgender women theatre artists, activists, and scholars—were invited to identify works historically overlooked by the Western canon. Using a collaborative process, the curators chose people who have deeply impacted them, knowing their personal selections would only reflect their own perspectives.
What emerged was the beginnings of a universe; constellations across history, genre, and theme. Separated by time and space, these women are interconnected all the same.
May this collection be a jumping off point to greater exploration of these women’s expansive work. May it inspire others to honor the multidimensional experiences of their own beloved community. May these selections not be the end of a conversation, but the beginning of one.
