I Will Speak for Myself
  • Edinburgh Fringe

One actress in an authentic, theatrical and compelling performance that breathes life into long-forgotten African-American womens voices from slave narratives, personal letters, memoirs, diary entries, court records, poems, public addresses and newspaper advertisements. Both deeply moving and completely accessible, audiences experience resilient poets, nurses, slaves, educators and activists who shaped America from the colonies to the Civil War.
