BWW Review: 50 IN 50: LETTERS TO OUR DAUGHTERS at Kumble Theater

"The history on American soil where 400 years ago it was illegal for enslaved Black people to read or write, the very act of Black women reading these stories written by Black women is a revolutionary act," the show's director, Dr. Indira Etwaroo said in a press statement.
