        This segment includes performances of works by three African-American women writers: “Ain’t I a Woman?” by 19th century abolitionist and feminist Sojourner Truth; “Alabama Centennial,” a poem about the civil rights movement of the 1960s by Naomi Long Madgett; and Nikki Giovanni’s popular self-love poem, “Ego Tripping.”

        Dhana Bradley Donaldson and Priscilla Hancock Cooper, cofounders of the former Theatre Workshop of Louisville, present a “poetic concert” featuring the words of African-American writers. Their performances focus on the significant role of African-American women in the struggle for racial justice and opens with Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech.
