"Ain't I A Woman!" is a Chamber Music Theatre work
for actress and trio (cello, piano, percussion). It celebrates
the life and times of four 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.
The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals
of the Deep South, the urban exuberance of the Jazz Age,
and contemporary concert music by African Americans.
This concert is free and open to the public,
made possible through the Woodward Artist fund.
