    Welcome to the AfroSolo Theatre Company and thank you very much for visiting our site! I hope you're off to a great 2015!!

    We are zealously working on the 21st annual AfroSolo Arts Festival, taking place in August and September of this year. We will start off with a free jazz concert in San Francisco's Yerba Buena Gardens. This year's concert will focus on drummers. We'll then host our Community Health Fair. Inspired by Dr. King's quote, "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane," we are doing all we can to alleviate this disparity. We will then have open our Visual Arts Show exploring issues around internalized racism. Curated by Melonie Green, it will take place in San Francisco's Main Public Library. For the second year in a row, we will host our special program supporting the growth and development of young Black men and boys titled Project Empowerment: The Audacity to Succeed. We are also continuing to accept letters from Black men addressed to young Black men and boys. The letters will be organized into an anthology with the goal of instilling hope, celebrating the lives of our youth and inspiring them to pursue greatness.

    As you see, we have plans for an extraordinary year and would appreciate your support it making it a tremendous success. You can attend events, provide (tax deductible) financial support, volunteer, provide in kind support, we desperately need a video projector.

    We look forward to your support and seeing you at the festival.

    With respect,
    Thomas Robert Simpson
    Founder/Artistic Director
