Deborah Frazier
Blues City Culutural Center


When Deborah Frazier co-founded Blues City Cultural Center over 35 years ago, she envisioned a company whose creative works added an authentic voice to Memphis theatre. As BCCC project director, she focuses her efforts on ensuring that their work engages and empowers underserved populations throughout the Mid-South. As the co-creator of BCCC Signature Programs, she has introduced hundreds of individuals to the arts whereby they can improve their quality of life through creative expression.

Deborah is also an accomplished actress, director and playwright. Knight Songs, a compilation of the works of poet Etheridge Knight, toured state prisons as a project of the Tennessee Commission for the Humanities. WHO AM I? For Women Who Have Seen the Rough Side of the Mountain, which illuminates homelessness among women, was presented at a national women’s theatre festival and at Southwest Tennessee Community College. Recently, she received the Gyneka Award from the Women’s Theatre Festival of Memphis for her work.
