How Black Mothers Say "I Love You"


Directed by Horizon Associate Artist Thomas W. Jones II

Southeastern Premiere

July 13 – August 19 (Press Opening: July 13)

 

From the creator of the popular ‘da Kink in my Hair comes a powerful and touching tale of immigration, family, and sacrifice. Hard-working Daphne left her two young daughters in Jamaica for six years to create a better life for them in America.  Now thirty years later, proud and private, Daphne is relying on church and her nearby dutiful daughter to face a health crisis.  But when feisty activist Claudette arrives unexpectedly from far away to help out, her arrival stirs up the buried past, family ghosts and the burning desire for unconditional love before it’s too late.
