Black Women Walking is a one-act play which highlights the extraordinary achievements of eleven of the greatest female leaders in African American history. Through storytelling, music, and dance, venture back in time to meet such historic figures as Sojourner Truth, Marian Anderson, Wilma Rudolph and other Black heroines of history. Experience the courage, character, and brilliance of these women who impacted the American landscape with their powerful journeys toward freedom, justice, and equality.
Black Women Walking educates, entertains, and encourages. It is a spiritual-based play with universal themes about the importance of education, civil rights, liberation, justice, and equality. It is a classic tale of finding strength in the struggle, appropriate for all ages, and has a message for everyone. Young girls are empowered with a sense of womanhood, self-confidence, and pride. Males see beyond the images of women portrayed in the hip-hop culture and media, leading to healthier, respect-based attitudes and behavior. Layered with soul-stirring songs, interpretive dance, and dramatic multi-media imagery, Black Women Walking is an opportunity for parents to share a positive learning experience with their children and educators can use it as a tool for teaching important lessons of history, diversity, and social interaction.
