I Know It Was the Blood: The Totally True Adventures of a Newfangled Black Woman
Written & Performed By Tara Lake
In this award-winning story of triumph tinged with bits of heartache, a scrappy Jersey girl navigates a changing world and finds the courage to live life on her own terms. Actress, soprano, and storyteller Tara Lake takes audiences on a journey into the world of her African American girlhood of the 1980s-1990s—a world steeped in family Sundays, Church conventions, and extravagant reunions, weddings, and funerals. It’s an unforgettable sojourn embracing Southern Roots, Gospel Rhythms, and Queer Identity, in which one family’s love conquers all. Join us for a compelling performance of soul-rich theatre, storytelling, song and poetry!
