Twenty-five Black alumni from The Juilliard School have formed the Juilliard Black Alumni Association, organized in response to a triggering workshop held at the school last September in which participants were asked to pretend they were slaves.

In a recent letter to the Juilliard Board of Trustees, the JBAA outlined an action plan with steps for the school to decolonize the drama department, including diversification of faculty and staff, a clear code of conduct with consequences, and employment of Black counselors. JBAA requests a collaboration with Juilliard to help create and equitable and inclusive conservatory. "The work to dismantle white supremacy is vast—we do not take it lightly and are whole-heartedly prepared to meet this moment as we create a space that is not only inclusive, but one that celebrates the diversity of the human experience. We sincerely hope you will join us," the letter concludes. The founding members of JBAA are: Maechi Aharanwa, Bobbi Baker, Jasmine Batchelor, Francois Battiste, Nicole Beharie, Brittany Bradford, Danielle Brooks, Jimonn Cole, Lee Edward Colston II, Danaya Esperanza, Brandon Hall, Corey Hawkins, Joaquina Kalukango, Brandon Gill, Jules Latimer, Vella Lovell, Chris Myers, Teyonah Parris, Johnny Lynn Ramey Jr., Medina Senghore, Stacey Scott, Austin Smith, Carolyn Michelle Smith, Desean Terry, and Sheldon N.
