Based on her memoir of the same title, Dr. Endesha Ida Mae Holland recounts her 20-year journey from humble beginnings in Greenwood, Mississippi, during the Jim Crow era, her civil rights activism, achieving her Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota, and celebrating her success as a Pulitzer-Prize nominated playwright. Experience a story of triumph in the face of extreme adversity that expertly weaves through the trials and tribulations of Dr. Holland’s life relayed through the bodies and voices of only three actors, all in tribute to one of America’s unsung heroes.
A joyful celebration of survival. Directed by Michelle Blackmon.
