Thembi Mtshali-Jones to receive Living Legend Award

South African actress, singer and playwright Thembi Mtshali-Jones is set to be honoured with a Living Legend Award at the 2019 National Black Theatre Festival. The festival celebrates the talent of performers, designers, directors, producers, and technicians from across the US and abroad.

In a statement, Thembi shared her excitement at the news saying in part: “ I feel very honoured and so excited to be recognised abroad and not only at home. I have presented my work at that festival for many years and to be finally getting recognition while I’m still alive is a huge privilege. This comes as a pre 70th birthday present.”

The National Black Theatre Festival takes place on July 29 – August 3 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Thembi Mtshali-Jones to receive Living Legend Award. Congratulations!
