Leading up to "Celebrate Black Dance," the fourth and next to the final installment of the AAACC based art series, and prior to the January 18th standing ovations of opening night of "The Wiz," the "Season of Black Art" included a special presentation, "Creative Conversations," with cast member, Olivia Jackson (not related to Rodney Earl Jackson Jr.), who multi-tasked by being interviewed by Aide to Mayor London Breed Tyra Fennell and Jackson, providing a mini-dance class for the audience pack and pausing in the midst of the event for an interview with KTVU's 4 pm January 11th show produced by Kait McAfee.

A Columbus, Mississippi native, Jackson told Heather Holmes that it was incredible being a part of "The Wiz" cast. The extraordinary cast features five-time Emmy Award®-winner Wayne Brady ("Whose Line is It Anyway," Kinky Boots) as The Wiz, award-winning recording artist Deborah Cox as Glinda, Melody Betts (The Factotum, Lyric Opera of Chicago) as Aunt Em and Evillene, Kyle Ramar Freeman (A Strange Loop) as Lion, Phillip Johnson Richardson ("Sharper," A24), and recording artist Avery Wilson ("On Top of the World") as Scarecrow. Nichelle Lewis (Hairspray, National Tour) makes a star turn Broadway debut as Dorothy. In a touching moment of the interview, KTVU Anchor Holmes commended and affirmed the young actress/dancer Jackson was worthy of being a part of the star-studded cast.
