Written & Performed by Ami Brabson
Saturday, February 10 at 8pm
With a little help from strong women like Ruby Dee, Phoebe Snow and Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Ami Brabson explores the many facets of being a phenomenal woman. “…inspiration, resilience, motivation, finding our power and honoring those who have come before us. This evening of music, poetry and storytelling celebrates women who have dared to speak their minds.
Ami invites us to take this journey with her, and it couldn’t come at a more opportune time in our history as the country continues to explore issues of equity, access, race, gender and power.
PHENOMENAL WOMAN reminds each of us to be mentors and guides, to listen to others and share our wisdom, to speak our truth because we just might inspire someone else to speak theirs.
