About Us

Morganacity, founded by Morgan Middleton, exists to be an innovative creator and storyteller through theater, film, television and literature. Morganacity is a creative media hub established to create a sustainable future in which the arts and people of color meet and find relevancy, beauty, acceptance and respect.

We want people of color to see themselves engaged in many art forms in ways they may not have considered, and to know they belong. With the goal of ramping up representation, Morganacity aims to uplift the art forms by telling stories that represent those who have been underrepresented and misrepresented in media and society across generations. Morganacity presents stories in a creative way that transforms and inspires individuals and communities of color, giving authentic voice to the voiceless and promoting empathy and understanding.
There are no boundaries when it comes to the expressions we want to present. We emphasize representation with the objective of increasing participation and interest in the arts and media, satisfying the communities’ thirst for engaging, authentic and respectful representation in entertainment.

We cultivate artists who we believe have the ability and desire to collaborate across multiple fields including, but not limited to writing, music composition, acting, illustration, dance, and music.

The mezzo soprano has performed on stage with Santa Fe Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago and performed with composer Ricky Ian Gordon at the Door Kinetic Arts Festival (DKAF) in Door County, Wisconsin.

An advocate for the arts, Morgan was named a 2020-2021 fellow with Turn The Spotlight, an organization that empowers leaders to build a more equitable future for the arts.
