Description

Sistas is an uplifting musical journey, of a multi-generational African-American family. Based on a series of interviews conducted with black women over a six-year period and using a playlist of songs made famous by artists that include Billie Holiday, Lena Horn, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Beyoncé and others, this musical tells of the struggles, the joys and the triumphs of being black and of being a woman in America. Told through the life and experiences of one woman and the women in her family, the story easily segues from the days of Jim Crow to the present and covers a range of topics from segregation, the women’s movement to the meaning of love and control. The narrative is stitched together using the lyrics of songs that perfectly capture the mood and speaks to the issues of each period and time. Songs include “Strange Fruit,” “Society’s Child,” “Taint Nobody’s Business,” “I am Not My Hair,” “A Woman’s Worth,” and “Tyrone.”
