A Karamu Classic. Langston Hughes’ famed retelling of The Nativity Story, performed in a gospel style, and including popular Christmas carols.

Langston Hughes’, Black Nativity, returns to Karamu as a reimagined holiday classic. Soul-stirring song, music, dance, and theatre create this one-of-a-kind rendition of the Christmas Story. The play tells the story of Mary and Joseph’s journey through song and dance, culminating in a rousing finale surrounding the birth of Christ. Glorious gospel music and joyous Christmas carols help to create a soulful celebration of the greatest gift on earth that appeals to all walks of life. Reggie Kelly directs this new, vibrant extravaganza.
