Help Me Bring My Play ‘In Her Words’ Back in 2013

I debuted my play “In Her Words” earlier this year for a Black History Month tour that included stops at the United States Peace Corps headquarters and the DC Public Library. I have some stops planned for 2013, but, with your help, I can ensure that we are broadening our audience and bringing the best show possible.

So, what is the show about?

Imagine growing up during a time when lynching wasn’t illegal– and neither was segregation for that matter– and McCarthyism was rampant. Now, imagine creating– amidst that environment– art that transcended race, bled through inequality and uplifted a nation. In the musical theatrical presentation, “In Her Words”, we meet five transformative African-American creatives– Nina Simone, Lucille Clifton, Zora Neale Hurston, Billie Holiday and Lena Horne– who rose above the binds of racial injustice and fed the souls of millions with their art and their message.

Liberated Muse Arts Group debuted “In Her Words” in 2012 to more than 200 audience members at sites within the DC Public Library System and the United States Peace Corps headquarters. In 2013 we have been invited to present the show again but this time we need your help.

What We Need & What You Get

We toured “In Her Words” in 2012 through Washington DC off of the fumes of love and commitment. We are hoping to broaden the audience for this powerful piece and need your help! We would love to earn $10000 but a start of $2000 could cover some bare necessities such as:

  • Travel expenses
  • Venue reservation
  • Costuming
  • Actor stipend

“In Her Words” has minimal staging requirements, but your kind contribution will help us maximize our presentation. If we exceed our goal of $2000, we will apply it to actors stipend and venue reservation/application fees for possible showcasing in upcoming festivals. Additional funds will also help fund Liberated Muse Arts Group 5th Anniversary festivities.
