*SharonWashActor: So proud to have been a part of this. Thanks
@MonicaNdounou for including me. Onward!
STIknisArts: Theatres across the US are staging a wider array than ever of plays reflecting varied experiences of the African American diaspora.

* MINKAWILTZ: This is exciting on many levels! Not holding my breath and waiting for approval kind of exciting.
@DonnettaLavinia; Well now this was a power read!!
