Black Women Walking is an award-winning, breathtaking theatrical production that combines monologues, movement, music, and multimedia to bring to life the stories of courageous black heroines who changed the course of American history. Featuring an all-female cast, Black Women Walking weaves together an ensemble of lived experiences and perspectives that elicit from audiences’ laughter, tears, and praises, as it journeys through the stories of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Bessie Coleman, Fannie Lou Hamer, Willie Mae Ford Smith, Ida B. Wells and so many more. This riveting theatrical production is packed with emotional power and shows any audience that the strength of women can only fully be realized and acknowledged in the present by looking back, embracing and celebrating the past.
