The Show

“Pathways” is a one-woman show depicting the lives of selected African American females and their contributions to our society. Through “Pathways”, the audience members are exposed to women who have often been overlooked or marginalized by history text books – women who overcame difficulties and pushed beyond the boundaries of “ordinary” lives to break new grounds. “Pathways is a wonderful theatrical experience for children and adults alike. It is enlightening and empowering as well. Children are excited to see these famous historical women come to life: the ones they have studied in school like Harriet Tubman and Bessie Coleman.

Productions are adapted for Grades 3-5, Middle and High School audiences.
Available January – March 2014
One show: $375 Two shows back-to-back: $650
