Ain’t I a Woman

The Core Ensemble Featuring Shinnerrie Jackson


FREE EVENT in the Student Union Auditorium

Shinnerrie Jackson portrays the lives of four, African American women in American history while interacting with the onstage musical trio of cello, piano and percussion.

A celebration of the life and times of four powerful African American women: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter, and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals and blues of the Deep South, the urban vitality of the Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music by African Americans.
