Ain’t I a Woman! celebrates the life and times of four powerful African American women - renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston; ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth; exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter; and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer.
The production’s musical selections are drawn from heartfelt spirituals and blues of the Deep South, the Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music. Ain’t I a Woman! is a joyful exploration of the trials and triumphs of four passionate and accomplished women.
