“We are seeing the country shift from complacency to action around issues of black lives mattering, and a crucial part of that conversation is black women's lives. Black womanhood has often been marginalized through perceptions of our Hair, Body and Attitude, and if anything is going to shift in our nation, we have to engage our artists in deconstructing these social prisons. So welcome to the dialogue and get ready to be a participant, because this is beyond a performance or a short play festival, this is the continuation of a movement."
