The Core Ensemble's presentation of Ain't I A Woman is a live music theatre work for actress and trio (cello, piano and percussion). It celebrates the life and times of four African American women: ex-slave and fiery Abolitionist Sojourner Truth, renowned Novelist and Anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, exuberant Folk Artist Clementine Hunter, and fervent Civil Rights Worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals of the Deep South, the urban exuberance of the Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music by African Americans.
