AAUW of North Carolina is thrilled to partner with Shared Radiance Performing Arts Company to present
Sisters of Mine
a new production commemorating the 100th annivesary of the 19th Amendment.
As you watch the actors and listen to the original music, you will travel back in time to the 1920s and before, when women were struggling for autonomy and the right to vote.
AAUW Greensboro branch member and Shared Radiance Artistic Director, Sherri Raeford, worked with eight other actors to research a diverse group of women, mostly from North Carolina, and to create moving monologues for their stories. This is a story for all of us — the Sisters demonstrate the injustice that women of color and other minorities were not granted the right to vote in 1920. You can’t help but be moved as you relive women’s struggles for equal rights with the actors – right up to today’s fight for passage of the ERA!
A grant from AAUW NC supported the creation of the production.
Join us after dinner on Friday evening, March 27, at the conference hotel for the premiere of this remarkable performance.
