Black Nativity is an African-American telling of the Christmas
story written in 1961 by acclaimed poet and playwright Langston Hughes
(1902-1967). This one-act version, produced by Dominion Entertainment
Group, takes audiences from a traditional black church to an Africanized
Jerusalem through dance, spirituals, anthems and toe-tapping gospel
numbers ("My Way Is Cloudy," "Poor Baby Jesus," "Mary Did You Know,"
"What Child Is This" and many others. It's performed at Fulton County's
Southwest Arts Center. For many metro Atlantans, it isn't Christmas
without Black Nativity.
