The Story

Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1988, this earthy, assertive, tough and buoyant play is an autobiographical account of a remarkable woman’s rise from abject poverty to Ph.D. Out of the rural black experience of the 1950s and 60’s a mother’s legacy to her daughter triumphs. A joyful celebration of survival.
