  • CHESS Speaker Series: core ensemble

    Saturday, March 9 2024 

    Unbought” is a Core Ensemble music theatre piece featuring the dramatic stories of three African American women: journalist and women’s suffrage activist Ida B. Wells, Thomas Jefferson’s slave and concubine Sally Hemings, and Shirley Chisholm, the first African American in the U.S. Congress and the first African American woman to run for President. Here is a demo video:

    The title of the show comes from Shirley Chisholm’s memoir, “Unbought and Unbossed”; the music is from popular and folk traditions and works by African American women composers.
