The Justice Theater Project presents Black Nativity in Concert

The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the North Carolina Museum of Art require concert participants ages 13 and up to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 NAAT or PCR test result; test results must be within 72 hours of the event. Please plan to have one of these items in hand upon entry for Museum personnel.


The perfect family holiday experience! Artistic leaders Dr. Asabi (Stephanie Howard) and Rev. Ray Watkins bring this soaring 45-minute gospel concert to life. It features nine soloists, West African and contemporary dance, a live band, vibrant costumes, and a beautifully poignant narrative.

This event takes place outdoors (weather permitting) and seating is general admission—please bring lawn chairs or blankets.

Sponsored by Carol Woods Retirement Community.
