"Zora" and "The New Cultural Cafe at Studio W.

Welcome to the Multi-Media Training Institute (MMTI), where creativity meets education in the digital realm! At MMTI, we pride ourselves on nurturing talent and fostering innovation in website content creation. Our dedication to excellence shines through in every project we undertake, including our latest production: “Zora,” a captivating play inspired by the life of the iconic Zora Neale Hurston.

In “Zora,” we delve into the rich tapestry of Hurston’s life, weaving together a compelling narrative that resonates with audiences far and wide. It’s more than just a play; it’s a celebration of Hurston’s legacy and a tribute to her enduring influence on literature and culture.

We’re honored to have garnered the support of esteemed organizations like the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Beta Zeta Chapter, the DC Collaborative, Being Well While Black, and many others. Their presence at our productions is a testament to the power of unity and the importance of storytelling in bringing communities together.

As we move forward, MMTI remains committed to producing plays that speak to the hearts and minds of our audiences. We strive to inspire and promote the stories of notable figures who have shaped our history and deserve to be remembered. Join us on this journey of discovery, enlightenment, and artistic expression at MMTI, where the spotlight is always on creativity and culture.
