On Their Own Ground

Meet three women whose lives show that vision plus action can change anything! Join Madam C J Walker (the first self-made American female millionaire and hair-product queen), Amy Ashwood Garvey and Amy Jacques Garvey (the two wives of African nationalist the Hon Marcus Garvey, champions of the movement in their own right), in Amantha Edmeads play about the power of hope in action. Follow our heroines from post-slavery, through Garveyism, to the Harlem Renaissance and beyond Drawing on African theatrical practices of fusing performance, this piece is brought to life through storytelling, comedy, movement and song.
