WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This one act, one woman piece depicts a day in the life of Sadie Alexander. Sadie Alexander was a woman who was unfaltering in her devotion and loyalty to her race, her family and her love of life. In a time of adversity and overwhelming prejudice, Sadie Alexander excelled academically and was the first black woman to receive a Ph.D. in economics, as well as become the first black woman admitted to the Pennsylvania bar. As a lawyer and economist, she served a gamut of roles both politically and in her community. She devoted her career to advancing the well being and quality of life for everyone in which she came in contact.
