"Ain't I A Woman"
Performed by Core Ensemble Chamber Music Theater, this production celebrates the lives and times of four significant African-American women: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals of the Deep South, the urban exuberance of the Jazz Age and concert music by African American composers including Diane Monroe. This performance is funded by NEA and the Nevada Arts Council.
