Memories of Lee

“Black theater, as any theater, has many different facets, many different aspects," Richardson told NJN’s “New Jersey Nightly News" in 1981, not long after Crossroads’ founding. “We want to try to explore as many of those as possible, whether it be drama, whether it be a play like ‘For Colored Girls,’ whether it be something from South Africa or something from the West Indies. We just want to do as much about the black experience as we can.”
