Four different women from four different ethnic backgrounds, four voices heard and one story told. "HerStory" is the single account of love, pain, struggle, and triumph, spoken over melody and song, tear shed and laughter.

Guest performers are Jennifer Seary, Elisabet Verlasquez, Susan Sweeney and Kraal Charles.

Unlike the traditional stories of fainthearted and muted women, here, they testify true accounts of their existence; from subordination to dominance, from discord to sisterhood. Mix this with spirituals and Meringue, hip-hop and jazz. Here the story is told. It is honest. It is intelligent. It is sexy.

Presented as part of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

Co-sponsors are CMASS, Yuri Kochiyama Cultural Center, Latinx Cultural Center, Malcolm X Cultural Center.
