“A JOURNEY…” by Kimberly Wilson is an intimate look at the African American experience told through the eyes of African American women as performed by one woman, professional actress and singer Kimberly Wilson. This will be presented by Westport Historical Society on Thursday, March 7, from 6 to 8:15 pm.
A Westport resident, Ms. Wilson skillfully tells of the struggles and influence of Black womanhood with strength, dignity and pride and in perfect lockstep with the history of the United States. Eight women, eight pivotal generations, present to you their stories through song, movement and dialogue and how ultimately their faith, hope, and calling help shape the America we know today. Joyful celebrations and painful reflections are rendered artistically to tell a story of persistence and courage and how womanhood, not always intricately woven into the tapestry of American history, is the thread that holds together the fabric of American life.
Included in this journey are historical reflections from a Native African Queen, an Enslaved Woman, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, and Westport’s own Lyzette Hyde Monroe and more.
