The Core Ensemble performs the chamber music theatre work "Ain't I a Woman!," celebrating the life and times of four powerful African American women: renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter and fervent civil-rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals and blues of the Deep South, the urban vitality of the Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music by African Americans. "Ain't I a Woman!" is a joyful exploration of the trials and triumphs of four passionate and accomplished women.
