African-American Shakespeare Company

The award-winning African-American Shakespeare Company (AASC) was established in 1994 by Sherri Young whose goal was to bring diversity and inclusivity to theatre for communities of color. We do this by performing classical works and hiring 90% of the major roles to Black artists and other communities of color as a way to engage BiPOC communities. Shakespeare and other classic productions are infused with cultural icons/characters, music, setting, and place of time that are familiar and iconic to communities of color. This brings a sense of familiarity and inclusiveness to these time-honored works; while creating new artistic vision and opportunities for artists of color to become unbound and stretch beyond traditional roles.

Awards for their work includes: “Best Live Theatre” by San Francisco Magazine in 2018; Certificate of Honor San Francisco Mayor London Breed and former Mayor Gavin Newsom (now California Governor); Jefferson Award for Public Service (Silver Recipient) in 2018; The Paine Knickerbocker Award in 2014 for Outstanding Achievement for a Theater Company by the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle; and a Community Partner Award from University of San Francisco's Leo T. McCarthy Center for outstanding collaboration in providing a quality Service-Learning program.
