Black women and savory food go hand in hand. We cry, laugh, curse, and plan our next adventures over meals. We welcome strangers and friends to our table, and we never use recipes because we know instinctively what goes where in order to create the perfect dish each and every time...

Gumbo Lab will provide artistic resources and a virtual theatrical platform for BIPOC, Black Queer, Black Trans, & Black Femme theatre artists and performers by providing each of our artists with the necessary ingredients to shine and shake things up!

What it means to be Unapologetically Black!!

The Gumbo Lab will nurture and support:

  • Community

  • Ingenuity

  • Creative Expression

  • Transformative Authenticity
