When a trio of African-American sisters, their mom and their white sister-in-law arrive for the funeral of the family matriarch, they begin to unearth mementos that lead them to look back at their own relationships as well as the history of black women, as told through the hit songs of each era. Dorothy Marcic's musical takes you through the struggles of the '30s and the girl group sounds of the '60s, right up to the power decade of the '90s with songs ranging from Billie Holiday to Beyonce, including ""Oh, Happy Day," "Mama Said," "I Will Survive" and "A Woman's Worth."

I am very familiar with the history of the Tuskegee Airmen. This production was heartwarming and fact-based,-- something you could truly believe and be inspired by. It was both educational and entertaining. The cast gave very powerful performances –electrifying! I have sent
e-mails to about twenty friends. And, will share info at the office. Parents should take their teenage children to see it – it’s educational!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Uplifting... inspirational... By the end, when the pilots overcame their obstacles and finally got up into the air to the swelling of music, tears welled up in my eyes.” --<em>The New York Times</em>
The play goes beyond the headlines of the popular stories of the Tuskegee Airmen and exposes the men who exhibited the courage to excel, in spite of all the overwhelming odds against them.
