Wayfound: Music and Mothers of The Movement


This production will transition us from Black History Month right into Women's History Month.


A dramatic performance that through music, theater and dance, brings to life a series of firsthand accounts depicting the strife, struggle, and triumph of Black Women activists from the 19th century to the present day. This show gives voice to these often unheard patriots while also asking: How far have we come? How far do we need to go?
