GRACE

Conceived and Composed by Nolan Williams, Jr.

Directed by Robert Barry Fleming

  

Every plate holds a story in this celebration of a family’s long history with African-American cooking—inventing recipes to survive hard times, to keep memory alive, and to gather together with love. Unfolding through gorgeous original music, Grace is a soaring tribute to the strength of community and the dishes that carry a complex legacy.

DEVINE HAMER GRAY

Conceived and Composed by Nolan Williams, Jr.


Devine Hamer Gray, a new American musical in development, tells the story of how three heroic American women, Annie Devine, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Victoria Jackson Gray,  ran for congress in 1964 and nearly defeated the Mississippi congressional delegation. Their courage—and that of their daring  Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party—is an untold, important narrative of the Civil Rights Movement.
