About The Nod
The Nod tells the stories of Black life that don’t get told anywhere else. Our show ranges from an explanation of purple drink’s association with Black culture to the story of an interracial drag troupe that traveled the nation in the 1940s. We celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black — in America, and around the world.
The Nod is an artfully idiosyncratic exploration of the kaleidoscopic spectrum of experiences that make up black life in America.
