New Works Festival

True Colors Theatre Company, a nonprofit regional theater company based in Atlanta, GA, invited me back to direct Cheryl L. West’s beautiful play about the indomitable Fannie Lou Hamer entitled, FANNIE: THE MUSIC AND LIFE OF FANNIE LOU HAMER.

TRUE COLORS mission is to celebrate the rich tradition of Black storytelling while giving voice to bold artists from all cultures.

“We add dimension and relevance to our work on the stage through active community events and education programming.” The vision of Artistic Director Jamil Jude is for the company to thrive at the intersection of artistic excellence and civic engagement.
