Event graphic for "Ain't I a Woman!"

NJCH is proud to sponsor “Ain’t I A Woman!” at Shea Center for Performing Arts.

This chamber music theatre work for actress and trio (cello, piano & percussion) celebrates the lives and times of four significant African American women: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. Text is by Kim Hines. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals of the Deep South, the urban exuberance of the Jazz Age and concert music by African American composers including Diane Monroe.

This 50-minute program is hosted by the Core Ensemble, with verbal introductions to vignettes from the lives of Sojourner Truth, Zora Neale Hurston, Clementine Hunter and Fanny Lou Hamer. A question-and-answer period with the performers concludes the program.
