About Us

Thomas Simpson, Founder of AfroSolo Theatre Company

What started as a birthday celebration quickly turned into a community event filled with art, dance, and music.  In 1993, the first AfroSolo Arts Festival was held, which gave a fresh perspective for the Black experience.

AfroSolo Theatre Company’s mission is to nurture, promote, and present African American art and culture and artists from the African Diaspora through solo performances and the visual arts.  We provide a forum to give an authentic voice to the diverse experiences of Black people in the Americas.  Through art, we bring together people of different ethnicities together to explore and share the human spirit that binds us all.

Our company is located in San Francisco, California.
