This must see production is written by the multiple award winning David D. Wright, directed and choreographed by the AUDELCO AWARD winning, Baraka de Soleil, with the creative input and consultation of The National Black Theatre, Founder, Dr Barbara Ann Teer This is the THIRD collaboration of David D. Wright, Orisha Tales, and The National Black Theatre, which includes the multiple Audelco Award winning OYA, and SANGO: Lord of Thunder).
