About Melanin Magic!

Written by Jodi Fernandez

In the Fall of 2020 NECS embarked on a journey to educate, empower, and build community through learning about history. In a time of racial unrest, strength and resilience comes from knowing our history. NECS students have engaged in the exploration of African and African- American history, anthropology, and sociology over the past few months. Melanin Magic! focuses on educating and uplifting students through song, dance, and spoken word. The production will highlight the survival and resilience of people of color and celebrate our common humanity.


In this production, NECS artists showcase their knowledge of our history through song, dance, drama and spoken word as we celebrate Black Artistry and Excellence during Black History Month. Performances will include: A short skit, a spoken word performance, a rendition of the Black National Anthem, and a musical/dance number that pays tribute to the African Diaspora in Latin America and Caribbean. The production will conclude with a talkback session led by NECS youth artists.

Creative Team:

Leslie Fields Cruz, Artistic Director Jodi Fernandez, Writer and Artistic Director Susan Cody, Music Director Bell Torres, Choreographer David Steele, VideoProducer
