"Pathways" take audiences on a journey through the lives of some of the most engaging, dynamic and successful African American women in our history. In this one-woman show, Actress Brenda Porter becomes a series of feisty women who have left their marks on history. They include Stagecoach Mary, Ida B. Wells, Harriet Tubman, Bessie Coleman, Edmonia Lewis, Wilma Rudolph and Barbara Jordan. They are sometimes funny, always daring and they offer inspiration to young women and men of today.

"Pathways is a wonderful theatrical experience for children and adults alike. It is enlightening and empowering as well. Old as well as young learn of the adversities all these women faced in their lives and that you can be anything you want to be!

Each character is brought to life with sincerity and humor from a script beautifully etched by Dr. Shirlene Holmes." - Jessica West, Artistic Associate, Theatre in the Square
