A poetic-dramatic tribute to songwriter, jazz singer, composer, pianist and arranger, Nina Simone, who released the song “Four Women” on her 1966 album Wild Is the Wind. Thulani Davis of The Village Voice called the song “an instantly accessible analysis of the damning legacy of slavery that made iconographic the real women we knew and would become.” Come experience the stories of these four African-American women in a medley of performances highlighting the dynamic experiences of the Black Arts Movement.
Presented by Oral Funk Poetry Productions (OFP) and co-produced by OFP Productions, the Theatre, Dance and Performance Technology Program, the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the Women’s Center, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
