Liberated Muse Arts, in association with Soul Pixie Productions and the DC Public Library, presents “In Her Words,” a performance celebrating the lives of African-American women. Join us for a theatrical musical presentation, examining the lives of artists Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Zora Neale Hurston and Lucille Clifton–creative women who used their artistic prowess to ignite and support social and political movements. Enjoy music and spoken monologue from the legendary women, culled from transcripts of speeches, autobiographical excerpts and interviews. Written and directed by playwright Khadijah Ali-Coleman, and featuring Quineice, Naomi Rose, Tracy Chiles McGhee, Anisha Newbill, Nia Simmons and Colie Williams as poet Lucille Clifton.
