Artistic Director

Najee Brown (He/Him)



As a young Afro-Latino boy growing up in Brooklyn, NY, during the early '90s, theater was an important tool that helped Najee Brown imagine a better world in the midst of increased violence due to the crack epidemic. He saw that performing arts could facilitate a safe environment, where people felt free enough to express themselves and their social justice views through storytelling on stage. In that spirit, Brown recently founded Theater For the People to provide that same outlet and opportunities for today's youth and adults, especially in cities that either lack diversity or include communities of marginalized people. He brings this entrepreneurial and creative energy now to the Multicultural Arts Center.

Marketing Assistant
Fredson Sossavi (He/Him)



Fredson was born in Togo, a small nation on the African west coast. His father successfully applied for a visa as a political refugee and studied engineering in New York City. Fredson and his mother united with his father a few years later - living in Oregon, and New Mexico, before finally settling in the suburbs of Massachusetts. High school proved to be a pivotal moment for Fredson as he learned about the Harlem Renaissance. He was enamored by the leading figures's artistic exploration in literature, music, and photography, along with skills in law, finance, and engineering. Shortly after, Fredson pursued a degree in legal studies and journalism, graduating Cum Laude at Suffolk University. Yearning to learn more about the arts, he enrolled in a graduate program at Harvard's Extension School studying digital media. Today he continues to take after his heroes of the Harlem Renaissance, producing works that shed light on communities in urban areas and the stories of the people intertwined in them.
