The August Wilson Red Door Project and Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. (headquarted on MLK Boulevard in King) invite you to a staged reading of My Walk Has Never Been Average, written by Roberta Hunte and Bonnie Ratner. My Walk Has Never Been Average is a multi-media presentation adapted for the stage from in-depth, first-person interviews with Black women in all aspects of construction. These stories reveal great inner strength and accomplishment in the face of the multiple oppressions facing Black working-class women in America.
The reading will be followed by a Community Forum on race, gender, work, and the arts as a vehicle for social change. The Community Forum is made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities (OH), a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds OH’s grant program.
