Episode 14

LaNeshe Miller-White

On this episode of Contemporary Black Canvas, I spoke to LaNeshe Miller-White who, together with Carlo Campbell and Walter Deshields, founded Theatre in the X in 2013. Theatre in the X is an outdoor performance collective that produces and performs several plays in Malcolm X Park in Philadelphia each August. Join us on this episode to learn how LaNeshe Miller-White first realized that she loved acting, how Theatre in the X found inspiration from Amiri Baraka’s Black Arts Repertory Theatre, and why it’s important to Theatre in the X to ensure accessible, free Theatre to communities within Philadelphia.
