Ain't I a Woman

Ain't I a Woman! Is a Chamber Music Theatre work for actress and trio (cello, piano, percussion).
It celebrates the life and times of four African American women: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist
Sojouner Truth, renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant folk artist
Clementine Hunter, and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score
is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals of the Deep South, the urban exuberance of the
Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music by African Americans.
