Hidden Women with Tammy Denease – Bessie Coleman

April 9th, 6pm

The Hidden Women Series brings to life important yet unknown women in history. Tammy Denease brings hidden women to life through a theater setting with minimal props and authentic clothing.

During the performance the audience (students, seniors, corporate) will travel back in time to observe the life of one of the seven women that Tammy brings to life. Each program will be observed virtually followed by a live question and answer session with Tammy.

Bessie Coleman

As Bessie Coleman, Tammy takes you on a journey into the world of the First Negro Aviatrix. You will take an international voyage that begins in the segregated south of the United States, where cotton was king and Jim Crow ruled underneath white sheets, where the color of your skin could determine whether you lived or died.

Your journey ends in Paris, France, where self-determination — not skin color or gender — is what truly matters.
