journey immensely..." - Stephanie Calla, Owner of La Maison d'Art

was laughing my butt off and then she transported the audience into a dramatic historical odyssey of
race in America via her character, Isis' journey to self - discovery....This play should be seen by
everyone...." - Clarence Mujahid Ali, Producer

of today's Hip-Hop genre with the culture of the 60's was so refreshing.... "
