'Homegoing: A Herstory of the Black Woman'

Sunday, May 5, 2019

Engleman Hall - Room C112

Homegoing: A Herstory of the Black Woman, a play written by History/Secondary Education alumna Daisha Brabham, is about the history of Black womanhood in America. Brabham wrote the play as part of an independent study in collaboration with the Women’s Studies department during her senior year. The play, beginning with the Yoruba Tradition of West Africa, travels with a number of different African American women such as Venus Hottentot, Billie Holiday and Mammie. A choreo-play, Homegoing emphasizes physical movement as well as primary source accounts contemporary to the time period.

The play will be presented twice today: First show is at 12 p.m. and second show at 6 p.m.

Tickets: $10 if you present a SCSU I.D., $15 for general public. Purchase tickets online.

The 64 Days of Nonviolence officially begins each year on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, and ends on April 4, the day we commemorate Dr. King. In our sixteenth annual observation of the 64 Days at Southern Connecticut State University, we continue to celebrate the peace and justice heritage in many of our cultures and heritages, including our observation of Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Asian/Pacific Heritage Month.
