Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 29, 2023
Ma Rainey, fiery and determined, fights to retain control over her music, while her cocky trumpet player, Levee, dreams of making his own name in the business. More than music goes down in August Wilson’s riveting portrayal of rage, racism, self-hatred, and exploitation. A 2020 adaptation of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, starring Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman, premiered on Netflix.
