In the winter of 2020, the African American Theatre Arts Troupe (AATAT) celebrated their 30 anniversary. Pioneered and directed by Don Williams, AATAT has survived at UC Santa Cruz and provided a space for Black actors unlike any other university. Their anniversary celebration virtually hosted alumni, current members, and the campus community to reflect on the history of AATAT and share stories about their time in the organization.
City on a Hill Press dedicated a series to the work of AATAT, Don Williams, and the history behind the organization. Within these articles, readers will find the stories being told by AATAT, and the story unfolding as AATAT looks for another 30 years.
