Mixed Blood Theatre to perform at FDLTCC

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will present a theatrical performance of Daughters of Africa by the Minneapolis-based Mixed Blood Theatre Company at 1:45 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, in the college amphitheater. The performance is open to the public and admission is free.

This music-driven history of the triumphs and accomplishments of African American women was written for Mixed Blood Theatre by award-winning playwright Syl Jones. It is a striking collection of profiles of both famous and forgotten remarkable women, celebrated and overlooked by history.

Daughters of Africa is an exuberant celebration fueled by the songs of Lena Horne, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah and many others. This one-woman show, directed by Warren C. Bowles, features Tatiana Williams.

Daughters of Africa is one of four culturally-specific productions toured this season by Mixed Blood Theatre, a Minneapolis-based multicultural theatre company founded in 1976. The others include the Chicano program Minnecanos; Dr. King’s Dream, a biography of the civil readers leader drawn from his own words; and Theory of Mind, a look at a college-bound high schooler on the autism spectrum.

The performance at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is sponsored by the college’s TRIO: Student Support Services program and the on-campus residents of student housing as part of the student life program at the college.
