A Season of Change for "Black Nativity"

'Black Nativity' has become one of the most beloved holiday traditions in Boston. It's been steadily growing in popularity since the National Center of Afro-American Artists first staged Langston Hughes' music play 37 years ago.

Now 'Black Nativity' involves more than a hundred the cast and backstage. But this is their first year without the show's founders...and, as WBUR's Claudine Ebeid reports, the usually joyful season is also a time of reflection.

This program aired on December 15, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
