Join us for the return of Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation to the Onstage @ Weeksville theater series, with youth production The HBCU Show, February 13 - 16, 2019.


The HBCU Show follows six adolescents from Brooklyn, NY, growing up with adversities and trying to live up to the society around them. The play recounts their personal stories and the learning experiences of participating in a Historically Black College & University Tour. The HBCU Show also tells the real life story of how Michael Kofi Hooper, took children from Brooklyn to HBCU’s all over the country. The goal of the tour was to show the determination of Black people to survive in America. Written by Kofi Osei Williams,  Executive Director of Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation, The HBCU Show is the perfect way to expose your students to institutions of higher learning.
