Meet three women who's life stories show that vision plus action can change anything!
We follow our heroines on a journey that whines between post slavery, through Garveyism, the Harlem renaissance, Pan Africanism and beyond.
Join Madam CJ Walker, (the first self made female millionaire and hair product Queen), Amy Jacques Garvey and Amy Ashwood Garvey (the two wives of African Nationalist the Honourable Marcus Garvey, and champions of the movement in their own right) in a play about the power of hope in action.
This uplifting solo piece of is authored and performed by Amantha Edmead and directed by John Sailsman. It is bought to life through a mixture of storytelling, comedy, movement and song. Drawing on African theatrical practises of fusing performance styles.
Come and join us for these three interwoven stories of triumph and hope.
