In response to participating in the 2023 Black Theatre network conference:
“They really boosted the students morale and made us feel that our talent is seen and appreciated. Everyone there wanted us to win and feel like winners. The conference set the students up to have acting opportunities after we graduate college. They were not afraid to open doors for us and get us through those doors. The whole process and conference itself didn’t lack in any area and just made me feel welcomed and like family right away.”— Benjamin Roberts, '24
