The CDG in conversation with Omar F Okai (@TheBBTAs)

Omar F Okai and Solange Urdang are the Co Founders/Directors of the #BlackBritishTheatreAwards (@TheBBTAs) that had its first ceremony in October 2019.

This year it is being produced by Kwame Kwei-Armah at The Young Vic (@YoungVicTheatre), in three very socially distanced and Covid safe spaces.

The BBTA Awards will be screened by @SkyArts on the 25th October.

Omar has joined us as the CDG celebrates Black British artists in the theatre, television and film industry during #BlackHistoryMonth (interviewer @HeatherBastenCasting, filmed by @BlackApronEnt)
