Gabby Sumney and Nerissa Williams-Scott

Our Circuit is an episodic documentary series exploring the specific challenges of being a black artist in a culture built on white supremacy through an examination of The Chitlin Circuit’s long history and its current iteration, The Urban Theater Circuit. Through interviews with performers, writers, producers, spectators, and scholars, Our Circuit seeks to assemble the most complete history of this African-American entertainment industry to date. In addition to the episodic documentary, Nerissa Williams-Scott, Gabby Sumney, and their team will bring the project on tour with different virtual reality experiences at each location.
