How does it feel to be in a love hate relationship with your country, your community, and your people? Ask a black woman from the South. Perils of a Southern Black Woman: stories, tales, and nightmares told in the light is a one woman show that weaves through the complex issues of race, religion, and gender. This collection examines life as seen through the eyes of the daughter of a Civil Rights activist, Baptist preacher, and teacher. Through a “sermonesque” performance that implores commentary, poetry, and extemporaneous discourse, the show celebrates blackness, strength, resilience, love, and the contradictory existence of being Black and American. Perils of a Southern Black Woman: stories, tales, and nightmare told in the light is a hallelujah church shout out to the ancestors and a reminder today's generations and future generations to never forget the past.
