February 14 Luncheon – Nate Jacobs – Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe

nate-jacobsIn celebration of Black History month, our February 14th luncheon speaker will be Founder and Artistic Director of the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe (WBTT), Nate Jacobs.

A graduate of Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, he has worked extensively for 25 years in the community mentoring, training, and developing young aspiring performing artists. As a result of Nate’s outstanding contributions to young people, the Sarasota County Branch NAACP Youth Council recognized him as one of the 2012 Men of Valor. In the spring of 2013, Nate was inducted into the Community Video Archives “Hall of Fame,” for his significant contributions to the arts and education.

Since its inception, the WBTT has mentored and inspired many African-American youth and young adults through participation in the company’s productions. It has provided a platform for artistic individuals who might not otherwise have had an opportunity to cultivate their interests and talents. Please join us to learn more about the WBTT and its dynamic founder who has made such a difference in our community.
