BroadwayBlack.com is dedicated to highlighting the achievements and successes of African-American theatre artists on and off the Broadway stage. For so long, our voices have been skimmed over inside and outside of The Great White Way. However, we know we have experiences to share that are essential. Created for the child in all of us who looked up to the stage searching for the faces that looked like ours. Celebrating the dedication of those who hand over their life to give all they have to the stage. Paying tribute to those who blazed the way for our story to be told, seen, and heard on The Great Way.

Responsibilities:

The Media Producer will be responsible for the big picture and day-to-day activities of the video team.

The Media Producer is also responsible for selecting 2 junior producers — who will assist in production tasks as necessary.
