Whistle In Mississippi


Shades of Truth Theatre, Audelco Award recipient 2009, has been a welcoming presence in the theater community for the past 15 years because of its excellence in producing positive and affordable entertainment with high standards. At the core of Shades of Truth Theatre is our commitment to produce plays written by new and veteran playwrights whose uncompromising voices present works that stimulate, agitate and activate.

We are most thankful for the ongoing collaboration with Voza Rivers/ New Heritage Theatre Group. Together we have produced our longest running production, The Meeting by Jeff Stetson as well as Whistle in Mississippi: The Lynching of Emmett Till, Sweet Harlem Suite, Rage Resistance & Revelry and two plays written by Celeste Bedford Walker, Camp Logan & Black Wall Street.

The enthusiastic audience response to all of our presentations & productions motivates and sustains us as we continue to re-write history and expose & explore the pain, the joy, and the often bittersweet complexity of the Black Experience.

Shades of Truth Theatre and New Heritage Theatre Group are elated to begin the journey to create what will become in a short time, a celebrated tradition in Harlem and around the world.
