Directed By Jade King Carroll
February 17 – March 13, 2016   

Centenarian sisters Sadie and Bessie Delany welcome us into their home to share an amazing story. They tell us about their eventful lives, how they fought injustices big and small, overcoming the racial strife of the 20th century with their charm, warmth, and dignity intact. They share a personal family tale of people who yearned to do the right thing, and strove towards it with every ounce of their beings. Come have dinner with the Delanys, and hear the story of our nation.
