ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN: THE ELDERS
Stephana Colbert, Jean Berry and Venise Berry will present Ordinary Extraordinary African American Women: The Elders, an illuminating collection of true and candid narratives celebrating African American women over 70 years of age. Often invisible and certainly undervalued, these women are the backbone of the African American community as mothers, teachers, artists, business women, trailblazers, activists, wives, friends and confidants. These stories share their journeys, reflections, and wisdom gained by a lifetime of challenges, successes, disappointments, and triumphs. This reading will highlight several of these great women, including Coralville artist, Jean Berry.
