 In 2021, AAPG partnered with Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts to produce its very first-of-its-kind BIPOC Playwrights Festival.  Five semi-finalists were chosen who displayed their original works in a reading on April 10, 2021.  The winner of the event won a full-fledge production in the Matthews Playhouse season in the Fall.  Coolidge Harris II, Playwright of the stage play, "Greenwood", received the grand prize.
