Black Girls Can Fly!


Black Girls (Can) Fly! is a play about a ten-year-old girl from Chicago named Bessie Mae. Drive-by shootings, school closings, and Black Lives Matter protests have taken a toll on young Bessie Mae. Her fear, of staying alive, has forced her to stay indoors. She does not understand why anyone would want to leave their neighborhood. When an opportunity to take a trip with her parents presents itself, Bessie Mae has to decide if she is going to allow her fear to enable or empower her to fly! See what happens to Bessie Mae in #BlackGirlsCanFly!
