Musical show to celebrate African-American women

Music-driven performance Monday at library   

The Middleton Public Library will present "Daughters of Africa," a performance by Mixed Blood Theater from the Twin Cities. Monday evening's 45-minute show -- which the library said is appropriate for all ages -- is meant to coincide with Black History Month.

"Daughters of Africa" presents the history of African-American women from slave ship survivors to their start on the silver screen. The 7 p.m. performance in the Archer Room commemorates the famous and the overlooked in celebration of the triumph of pride, determination and courage.  

Fueled by the songs of Lena Horne, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah and many others, the 45-minute music-driven show is appropriate for all ages.

Organizers said audience members will have the opportunity to engage after the show in reflection and post-performance questions.

This performance is funded by the Beyond the Page Campaign, a joint effort of the Dane County Library Service and the Madison Community Foundation.
