Executive produced by Julius Tennon’s and Viola Davis’ production company Juvee Productions along with John Legend’s, Mike Jackson’s, and Ty Stiklorius’ company, Get Lifted Film Co, Giving Voice follows the emotional journey of six students as they advance through the high-stakes August Wilson Monologue Competition, an event which celebrates one of America’s preeminent playwrights.

A new generation of performers is discovered in “Giving Voice,” which follows the emotional journey of six students as they advance through the high-stakes August Wilson Monologue Competition, an event which celebrates one of America’s preeminent playwrights.

Every year, thousands of students from twelve cities across the United States perform the Pulitzer Prize winner’s work ("Fences," "Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”) for a shot to perform on Broadway.

Directors Jim Stern and Fernando Villena capture students discovering themselves and the world around them through Wilson’s “Century Cycle,” a canon of ten plays portraying the 20th century African-American experience.

Giving Voice is an Endgame Entertainment and Pilgrim Media Group Production in association with Endeavor Content, Impact Partners, Get Lifted Film Co and JuVee Productions.
