"Hidden Women" is a one woman play where historical women are presented to help students gain knowledge of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Each woman is presented separately. Clo Pratt: Life after Slavery: Clo Pratt will give a first hand account of Colonial events. Elizabeth Keckly: A Letter from Frederick: Elizabeth Keckly was a confidante and dressmaker to Mary Todd Lincoln, who also received assistance from Frederick Douglass. Sarah Margu: A Child of the Amistad: Sarah Margu takes you beyond the legal case. Self Determination: Bessie Coleman Story: Bessie Coleman flew into history when she did not allow discrimination or racism to stop her from reaching her goal. After the performance there will be a 15 minute opportunity for students to ask questions regarding performance, stage setting, clothing or Hidden Woman. In one hour Tammy Denease will take students on a journey through time in her one woman show. These programs will also be offered virtually and I will be able to submit materials so they can interact with the artists.
Volunteers could help hand out materials for the hands on activity during the Bessie Coleman program.
