Having Our Say, based on the New York Times bestseller is the story of two African-American sisters who were outspoken pioneers of their generation, having witnessed history from shortly after the Reconstruction, through the Jim Crow years in the South, the Great Migration, Harlem’s Golden Years and the civil-rights battles of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
The Delany sisters were pioneers, quietly breaking down barriers as a teacher in the New York City public schools and as a female, black dentist. Never having married, they supported each other spiritually and lived together for more than 100 years, drawing strength from one another. This play is a heart-warming and inspirational story of how two average women helped change the face of America.
