USING NEW MEDIA TO HEAL AGE OLD TRAUMA
Darryl Gene Daughtry Jr, a Pittsburgh Native, is part of the multi-hyphenated creative producing class and is located spiritually and literally in Harlem. Currently, Darryl (also known as ‘DJ’) is a graduate of the Juilliard Drama school MFA program and was in the Broadway cast of the 4 time Tony award-winning play “The Inheritance”.
The lens for Darryl has widened from primarily performance to creator: writing, directing, and producing new, diaspora-healing, works.
