Town Hall was once a meeting place to rally around early 20th-century causes. It is the hall where African-American contralto Marian Anderson debuted when discrimination reigned elsewhere. Town Hall's vibrant progressive history lives on through its diverse programming in music, stand-up comedy and dance.
This center is dedicated to serving as a catalyst for the discourse on the role of the arts in society and their relationship to the sociopolitical climate in which they are created.
