McCree Theatre’s mission is to tell the African American Story in an African American Voice.
A people with little sense of their past can have no future. More importantly, a people with no sense of their collective cultural condition can have no art. When one speaks of African theatre, one speaks of the need to present that which is dedicated to the lives of African people. For we are first and foremost a people whose roots lie in the native soil of Africa, and whose blood, sweat, and tears have been spent nurturing the soil of American democracy. African theatre is dedicated to those Africans who live and die, unknown and unmourned in America.
W.E.B. DuBois was prompted to announce that four attributes of African theatre must be recognized and maintained. African theatre, DuBois asserted, must be ". . . about us . . . by us . . . for us . . . near us."
