GTM Survey Now Online

A few weeks ago when we sent out the letter calling for submissions to "Go, Tell Michelle: African American Women Respond to the 2010 Mid-Term Elections", we noted that we also were working on a survey. The survey is now complete and accessible by clicking here. We are asking you to share this information with your networks. Whether women choose to submit a letter or not, we are asking them to take a few minutes and complete this survey. The results will be reported in the upcoming book.

Go, Tell Michelle: The Play_Next Performance, San Diego!

Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company recently announced that it is very excited to present the first professional reading of the play you adapted, Go, Tell Michelle: African-American Women Speak to the First Lady. Our reading will take place on Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 6:00 pm at the 10th Avenue Theatre in downtown San Diego. The Company continues by saying: “Our reading will be presented in partnership with the Women's History Museum and Education Center in San Diego, a small nonprofit organization. We are particularly excited because this reading will fall just two weeks before Mo`olelo's production of Stick Fly by Lydia R. Diamond, and we feel these two pieces will speak to each other in profound ways. Go, Tell Michelle marks a landmark moment in American history with the first African American President and First Lady in the White House; and Stick Fly provides a peek into the lesser-understood lives of African American elite.”

Co-authors, Barbara Seals Nevergold and Peggy Brooks-Bertram plan to attend this premier performance in February and will participate in a “talk-back” following the performance. Local GTM contributors are also invited to attend this performance.
