Description:

This choreopoem, which premiered in 1976, tells the stories of seven nameless African-American women, identified only by the color of their clothing, who have suffered oppression in a racist and sexist society. It is a series of separate poems choreographed to music that weaves interconnected stories of love, empowerment, struggle and loss into a complex representation of sisterhood. The free-form poetic is an unflinching look at the racism and sexism faced by black women, and in some sense all women, making it as powerful and relevant today as it was over 40 years ago.

Our guest speaker for this event is Fanni Green, an Associate Professor of Theatre Acting and Voice at USF. Ms. Green has directed this fantastic play three times. She is a USF Theatre alumna, a USF faculty member for more than ten years, and has taught on the voice faculties of The Actor’s Center in New York, the Yale School of Drama, and the Juilliard School. In addition to her teaching, Ms. Green is a director, playwright, and actor.
