15-02-2018 12:00:00 04-03-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York "Having Our Say" The play is a tour-de-force for two black actresses. We enter the home of two centenarian sisters: Sadie Delaney, a retired teacher, age 103 and her kid sister, Bessie Delaney, a retired dentist, age 101. Like molasses and vinegar, these daughters of a former slave were always temperamental opposites, but together they grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance and had professional careers. While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=274051 North of History North of History
