The World Stage is under threat of possible eviction and this is the time for our community to come together. On Saturday, January 11, 2014, Beyond Baroque and the Revolutionary Poets Brigade will host a benefit reading to support The World Stage.
The World Stage is an educational and performance arts gallery in Leimert Park Village, the heart of LA’s African American cultural community.
The Stage, as it is affectionately called, was founded in 1989 by the late world renowned master jazz drummer Billy Higgins and by poet and community arts activist Kamau Daáood in an attempt to fill a cultural void that existed in the Los Angeles community.
Initially formed as a loose collective of artists and arts supporters, The World Stage has grown to assume a pioneering and pivotal role in the flowering of an arts movement in Leimert Park that has been hailed as the black cultural mecca by the Los Angeles Times.
