The Morningside Players were invited to reprise
their highly touted production
HAVING OUR SAY,
THE DELANY SISTERS’ FIRST 100 YEARS
The New York Society for Ethical Culture,
Sat. June 27th at 2pm.
Compiled by Emily Mann,
featuring Carol Carter and Edythe Jason
and directed by Susanna Frazer.
THE STORY: HAVING OUR SAY opens as 103-year-old Sadie Delany and 101-year-old Bessie Delany welcome us into their Mount Vernon, New York, home.
As they prepare a celebratory dinner in remembrance of their father’s birthday, they take us on a remarkable journey through the last hundred years of
our nation’s history, recounting a fascinating series of events and anecdotes drawn from their rich family history and careers as pioneering
African-American professionals. Their story is not simply African-American history or women’s history. It is our history, told through the eyes of two unforgettable women as they look not only into the past, but also ahead into the twenty-first century.
