"Sistas the Musical" -- Top 40 Hits Tell a Black Family History

Covering a range of topics from segregation and the women's movement, to the meaning of love and control, the narrative uses the lyrics of songs that perfectly capture the mood and speaks to the issues of each period and time - “Strange Fruit,” “Society's Child,” “Taint Nobody's Business” to expressions of self-worth and independence - “I am Not My Hair” by India.Arie, “A Woman's Worth” by Alicia Keys, “Golden” by Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu's “Tyrone.”
