    Black Nativity at Paramount Center

Black Nativity

Paramount Center
559 Washington Street Boston

Langston Hughes' Black Nativity - a joyous account of the nativity told through scripture, verse, music and dance - is a true Christmastime tradition, and the National Center of Afro-American Artists' captivating production is the longest-running performance of the Harlem Renaissance poet's song-play in the world. First performed in 1961, Black Nativity is a retelling of the Christmas story from an Afro-centric perspective, and mixes text from the Gospel of Saint Luke with black vernacular. A cast of children and adults brings this timeless story to life with music and dancing in this uplifting production for the whole family. Experience this Boston tradition, now in its 49th year, at Paramount Center.
