Our January performances will feature scenes showcasing the monumental efforts of Ida B. Wells in the early 20th century voting rights struggle and Fannie Lou Hamer risking her life in combating Jim Crow voting laws in 1950’s Mississippi.

In March and April, our programs will feature the icon on whose shoulders all voting rights efforts stand: Sojourner Truth. We will then experience the fiery rhetoric of Shirley Chisholm during her journey as the first African American Woman to run for President of the United States in 1972.
