Artistic African American Voices – I for Color

Artistic African American Voices – I for Color is a special 12-month feature by Dale Ricardo Shields, Archivist of Black Theatre African American Voices. The kick off for this series begins in February 2011 in celebration of Black History Month.


People of color who are accomplished receive very little, if any, recognition or media coverage in America. Artistic African American Voices will honor key innovators. Keep the Light Records is proud to feature this monthly series that highlights these artistic African Americans from theatre, music, poetry and other areas of art.


Dale Ricardo Shields, an accomplished Actor, Archivist, Director, Educator and Theatre Historian.

The vision of Dale Ricardo Shields is to document and preserve the history of artists of color on the Facebook page Black Theatre African American Voices for general public interest.
