Grounds: A Blackcast

Leslie Scott-Jones

During the early months of the pandemic, live theater shut down completely. Leslie Scott-Jones, a theater director and producer, was looking for a way to continue her work. Grounds: A Blackcast was born. This fictional podcast follows five Black professors at a predominantly white university in the south as they navigate work and life.


On September 23 my college buddy and I shared some music for Front Porch’s Save the Music.

Ms. Scott-Jones talks with Teresa Dowel-Vest and Dr. Tawnya Pettiford-Wates about Black women in theatre.

VPM interviewed me about the place for Black theatre in Charlottesville.
