Mixed Blood Theatre’s Daughters of Africa Visits DSU

February 1, 2016

Minneapolis’ Mixed Blood Theatre’s production of Daughters of Africa will be performed at DSU’s Trojan Center Underground on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. This music driven history of the triumphs and accomplishments of African American women was written for Mixed Blood Theatre by award-winning playwright Syl Jones. It is a striking collection of profiles of both famous and forgotten remarkable women, celebrated and overlooked by history.

Daughters of Africa is an exuberant celebration fueled by the songs of Lena Horne, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah and many others. This one-woman show, directed by Warren C. Bowles, features Tatiana Williams.

Daughters of Africa is one of four culturally-specific productions toured this season by Mixed Blood Theatre, a Minneapolis-based multicultural theatre company founded in 1976. The others include the Chicano program Minnecanos; Dr. King’s Dream, a biography of the civil readers leader drawn from his own words; and Theory of Mind, a look at a college-bound high schooler on the autism spectrum.

Daughters of Africa begins at 12:00pm on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 in the TC Underground. This performance is free and open to anyone.
