About This Show
An autobiographical one-woman show by Lacresha Berry which examines the rarely documented cultural history of African-Americans in Kentucky. Berry blends the perspectives of her own childhood through Kentucky geography and personal events while honoring the work of important ancestors whose lives parallel with her own. Her take on the culture, geography, and history of Kentucky is poignant, didactic, and enlightening as we see the historical figures of an enriching and emotional past come to life with ancestral music to soundtrack these powerful stories.
