The Women Gather to Celebrate Freedom’s Sisters

             Birmingham, Alabama—As the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) continues to share with the world a new exhibition honoring African American women who helped shape the spirit and substance of the Civil Rights Movement in America, several local women are coming together to honor these individuals as well.  The Women Gather II is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Freedom’s Sisters. This spoken word performance, an extension of BCRI’s annual Women’s History Month Program, features women performers with original poetry and quotes from the personalities highlighted in the exhibition. The Women Gather II takes place Thursday, July 30, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. in the Rev. Abraham L. Woods, Jr. Community Meeting Room at BCRI.

            This evening of enlightened entertainment will be hosted by BCRI staff members Priscilla Hancock Cooper and LaQuita Singleton.  The program includes veteran performers Shirley Ferrill, Sanovia Muhammad, Georgette Norman and Evelyn Williams.  Joining the group will be Karen “Jazz” Harris and Lisa Daniels, as well as members of the BCRI Youth Performing Ensemble—Alana Plump, Angelik Johnson and Jessica Lockett. Original works by local writers will be interwoven with music and quotes from women in the exhibition. 

            Freedom’s Sisters opens at the Institute July 25, 2009 and runs through October 4.  For additional information on any BCRI programs, please contact Angela Fisher Hall at (205) 328-9696, ext. 211.
