Precious Memories, a story of Black Womens' community survival is a precursor to Tobacco Fields in the Affrilachian Memory Play Series.
Tobacco Fields is a one-act play within the series that presents the voice of one Black Appalachian girl (affectionately known as Girl #9) growing up as an insider/outsider within the region. Situated in rural Kentucky, the play focuses on Girl #9’s coming of age. Girl #9 negotiates her Affrilachian identity through her own memory and imaginative stories of surviving work, abuse and family.
We have a donor who will contribute $400.00 if we can raise this amount by April 6th 2018. You can help us advance the narrative of America, Appalachia and women’s survival by donating to our efforts. Your donation is critical to expanding the conversation around diverse populations within the region, while also supporting the innovation and power of the arts. We are scheduled to perform the first week in April and every single penny helps! Thank you in advance for being our supporters and patrons. Please spread the word!
