I Am Queen: Charlotte 2024 Teaser

The community acclaimed stage show I Am Queen: Charlotte is back on stage on October 1st, 2022!

I Am Queen:Charlotte is a stage show created by two Black women to share stories about Black women. The Epoch Tribe duo has been telling the stories of marginalized communities for nearly 15 years, but it’s the stories of Black people that are the cornerstone of their work. I Am Queen is an opportunity to widen the scope of what it’s like to live, love and evolve as Black women through their own voices against the backdrop of stunning visuals and sounds, live and onstage.

It’s an experience. It’s for us, by us, but all are welcome to bask in the warmth.



Queen Charlotte Week is a citywide, multi-platform experience that centers and celebrates the lives, stories, and contributions of Black Women in Charlotte.

The program is built around a gathered history of narratives from women in our community that will be shared live, in-person and onstage at the Belk Theater on Sunday March 6th. Featuring the narratives of Black women who call Charlotte home writted by poet and master storyteller Hannah Hasan.

These stories are the foundation of a whole week of activities honoring Black Women, which kicks off March 6th with a storytelling extravaganza in the Belk Theater. Music will be provided by the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, and the show will be directed by Broadway veteran Benjamin Endsley Klein. The week will be filled with art, curriculum, and engagement opportunities with our partners: The Blumenthal, The Levine Museum of the New South, the Arts & Science Council, & more. The week closes with the Queens of the City musical performance in the Knight Theater.
