The Broadway League announced Wednesday that United Airlines is a financial supporter of the Black to Broadway program.
The program, established in 2019, is part of the League’s overall push for greater equity, diversity and inclusion on Broadway. The annual Juneteenth Celebration concert and the bi-monthly podcast “Black Business of Broadway” are among the program’s offerings.
“Broadway Celebrates Juneteenth” will be the program’s next public event, to be held June 19 at Duffy Square.
“We thank United Airlines for its support of Black to Broadway, as it shows their shared commitment to focus on the Black community’s creativeness and contributions to Broadway,” said Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League.
“We are excited to have our long-time partner, United Airlines, sponsor this initiative that allows for the creation of meaningful and consistent content that furthers the engagement of Black to Broadway.”
