Ain't I a Woman?
The Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series will close its thirteenth season with Ain’t I a Woman?, a chamber music theatre piece that celebrates the life and times of four powerful African American women: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score draws from the heartfelt spirituals and blues of the Deep South, the urban vitality of the Jazz Age and contemporary concert music. The series is sponsored by USAO with major support from the Oklahoma Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Chickasha Public School Foundation. Tickets can be purchased online at usao.edu or by calling 574-1213.
