Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters First 100 Years

Witty, incisive and downright hilarious- Show Business

I loved their choices for the plays that come through there. The hostess that greeted us had an awesome personality! She was so engaging and personable. I was there with my church family and met others there with their church. The play, 'Having Our Say, the First 100 Years' the Delaney Sisters, was very well done. The actors, two women, held us captive for two hours. The audience was held spellbound, while these two, 100+ year old women who told their story about having a father who was a slave and then an educated Bishop of a Methodist Church. It was just GREAT!!!!-- Rita Lewis- Tyler

103-year-old Sadie Delany and 101-year-old Bessie Delany were the daughters of a former slave, grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance, and had professional careers as a teacher and a dentist, respectively. While they make dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us the story of the last century, as they lived it. History at its most immediate, and poignant.
