In the Black Sketchathon

February 26 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

A sketch comedy telethon “that only lasts one hour.” In the Black Sketchathon is a show highlighting the very wide spectrum of the ‘Black Experience.’ It’s also a fundraising opportunity because it takes money to stay in the black. Produced by Brittany Alexis.  All shows air live at 9PM ET and will be available after airing on our YouTube channel.
