Chicago is more than just its Northside
Although the creativity of Black artists in America has stirred, inspired, and persevered for centuries, the outlets for its expression—even today—have remained limited and underfunded.
WHAT IS THE LILLIAN MARCIE VISION?
The physical aspects of our plan are bold and carefully considered: a modern theatre complex featuring a 350-seat multi-level, flexible performance stage; a second more intimate 100-seat boutique theater; and related areas, such as rehearsal spaces, dressing rooms, offices, and outdoor gathering spaces.
Our mission is to restore and secure the artistic legacy of Bronzville.
The Lillian Marcie Center is the physical manifestation of African American cultural aesthetic . By aesthetic we mean the collective artistic soul trust of the Black experience in the Americas. The Lillian Marcie Center is a functioning time machine that preserves the sanctity of the past and present to propel the legacy of Black excellence into the future.
