The African American Arts Alliance (4A) serves as one of the premier performing arts organizations on Penn's campus. Our mission is to promote an awareness of Black culture through the arts, specifically focusing on theatre. This organization is committed to quality performance, quality art, and quality theatre for general student, faculty, staff, and community audiences.

In the past, the Alliance has produced several productions ranging from Richard Wesley's Sirens to Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. Every year, the group sponsors the 4A Café, offering individuals with the opportunity to express themselves through poetry, spoken word, acting, singing etc.
