Black Nativity is a retelling of the classic Nativity story with an entirely black cast. Traditional Christmas carols are sung in gospel style. “It all began with that first Star in Bethlehem almost two thousand years ago – the Star that brought us to the Manger to kneel at the feet of Christ.”  Langston Hughes
