Flyin' West

May 25- June 25 2022

Set in the all-Black Western settlement of Nicodemus, Kansas, Flyin’ West tells the story of four Black female pioneers who stake their claim in the face of sexism, violence, and the constant threat of white speculators breaking up the home they’ve made for themselves. Through harsh conditions and complicated relationships, the sisters stand in solidarity, declaring “our lives to be our own and no one else's.” Pearl Cleage’s American classic archives the history not taught in schools of the brave Black women who migrated West as part of the Exodus of 1879.
