In honor of National Women’s History month, the Broadening Horizons Lecture Series at San Juan College will present a special music theater piece, “Unbought,” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, at the San Juan College Connie Gotsch Theatre.
Actor Tiffany Terrell and pianist Mikael Darmanie, members of Core Ensemble, will perform pieces that feature the stories of journalist and women’s suffrage activist Ida B. Wells, Thomas Jefferson’s slave and concubine Sally Hemings, and Shirley Chisholm, the first African American U.S. congresswoman and the first African American woman to run for president. The performance will also include music from popular and folk traditions and works by African American composers.
