Sankofa, Reach Back and Get It: The Black Joy Show


Kicking off 2022 in triumphant fashion is Sankofa, Reach Back and Get It: The Black Joy Show, presented as part of 2nd Story’s “Point of View” programming. Given the nature of 2nd Story’s work and the diversity of artists represented, 2nd Story has the unique opportunity to build community among and share the stories of marginalized groups by building teams for shows that share a particular point of view. Sankofa, Reach Back and Get It is led, produced, and performed by Black artists.


Can’t tune into the virtual performance, but still want to see your nearest and dearest perform? We got you covered! All virtual shows can be streamed for one week after the live event for $15.00.


2nd Story events are for everyone. The event will be captioned.

If you require another access service to fully participate or have any questions about accessibility, please contact Manager of Operations Ali Drumm at To ensure the best experience, please try to contact us at your soonest convenience.
