A Benefit For The New Black Fest

Lynn Nottage, a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, hosted a benefit in her home in Brooklyn in order to raise money to create a festival "aiming to showcase innovative work by and about black people from around the world."

Sandra Oh attended the event which was held on June 28th and New York Times has the scoop:

Ms. Hall and Suzan Lori-Parks (“Topdog/Underdog”) were among the prominent playwrights attending the benefit. By the end of the night, $7,000 had been raised as the hat was passed among about 45 people from the world of film and theater, including Sandra Oh (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Russell Hornsby and Chris Chalk (who play the sons in the Broadway revival of “Fences”), Eisa Davis (“Passing Strange”), the directors Malcolm Lee and Charles Randolph-Wright, and David Dower, associate director of Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.
