Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University, in person.

Following an award-winning season for BSU Theatre, Flyin’ West takes audiences back to the days of the Homestead Act and the founding of a Black community in Nicodemus, Kansas – a place of immense possibility, steered by the vision and fortitude of the Black female pioneers. Local director Angelisa Gillyard (Constellation Theatre, 1st Stage) joins with BSU senior stage management team Amari Chambers (Class 2023) and Malaysha Saboleh (Class 2023) to celebrate the resilience of ancestors and the strength of sisterhood as they confronted racism and encroaching opportunists who sought to undo the paradise they dreamed could be their future and their legacy.
