“Walking In Their Footsteps”, Friday


“Walking in their Footsteps” is a live production designed to celebrate the lives of five women – Elizabeth Taylor Greenfield, Ida B. Wells Barnett, Eliza Farish Pillars, Annie Bell Robinson Devine and Gladys Noel Bates. The production incorporates their stories through song, dance, spoken word and film. These women are pioneers and are just a few of the many women that have paved the way for others. A question and answer session will take place after the production. A reception will follow allowing attendees to visit with the performers and musicians.

The production and reception are made possible by the generous support of these sponsors: Mississippi Arts Commission; National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Incorporated, Central Mississippi Chapter; The Links Inc., LeFleurs Bluff Chapter; Women for Progress; and Dance Works.
