Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Liberated Woman from the Ghetto, a woman production, depicts the identity that many women of African descent struggle with due to the multitude of transitions in their lives. After inheriting a background of slavery, plantation life, segregated laws for over 285 laws and stages of Jim Crow, identity certainly had to be a gigantic concern. The author ably demonstrates the major points with the use of laughter to blunt the cruel paradoxes. She impersonates her husband, which is a bit clever, since few women ever act out the role of any man.

This production is a fitting pronouncement of the strange circumstances that blacks encounter in daily living. This family, in their quest for positive living experiences had to live, think and perform in the American Ghetto in both White and Black America, as Americans. The author finds how to become liberated from the pressures of life, whether it is the family, her husband, her children or society.
