Having Our Say, The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years

The Fourth Play of our 5 Play Mainstage Season for 16/17

- Trailblazing -


103-year-old Sadie and 101-year-old Bessie Delany are preparing dinner in remembrance of their father's birthday. While they cook, they recount a fascinating series of events and anecdotes drawn from their rich family history and their careers as pioneering African American professional women. As descendants of slaves, they have seen their fair share of turbulent times, and yet they forge into the present, with a little daily yoga to help along the way. Having Our Say is our history. It celebrates women and men, African Americans, our country, and the indomitable human spirit. Written by Emily Mann.
