I Dream a World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changed America by Andria Nacina Cole, Aug. 25-26, Area 405, $20

Daughters of A Revolutionary Summer will portray the likes of Angela Davis, Cicely Tyson, Katherine Dunham, Queen Mother Moore and Barbara Jordan in their end of program performance.

I Dream a World: Portraits of Black Women Who Changed America is a play based on the book length photo essay of the same name and directed by Ui-seng Francois, a recent graduate of Baltimore School for the Arts.

We hope you will join us as we honor a small set of everyday extraordinary women and the paths they’ve paved. All of the play’s proceeds go to participating daughters and program development.


Why were the dates for I Dream a World changed? (for current ticket holders)

So, we had to change the dates for the final show, because many of our daughters are new to performing. They need just a little extra time to get their lines JUST right. We hope you understand and can still join us. If the new dates don’t work for you, please let us know and we’ll issue a refund ASAP. Thanks so much for your patience with us. It’s really important that we curate an enjoyable experience for our daughters and the pressure of having to perform in only a couple of weeks made things way too stressful. We had to protect their peace.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Not per se. The featured women have experienced their share of trials and tribulations; our rendition does not sugarcoat that, but if we were you, we would bring our children!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

You should be able to find plenty of street parking in the area.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can reach Andria at 443.810.6979. Feel free to call or text. You can also email her at andria@arevolutionarysummer.com.

What’s the refund policy?

You can receive a full refund up to 7 days before the show. We ask that if you decide not to attend after August 4 or 5 that you let us know (via the contact information above).

What is A Revolutionary Summer?

A Revolutionary Summer is an intensive critical reading and writing program dedicated to shifting harmful narratives about Black women and girls through art, literature and self-inquiry. Every year, we welcome up to 20 Black girls to read and write with us, but especially to learn, love and heal themselves. You can learn more about us at  www.arevolutionarysummer.com.
