Liberated Muse Arts, in association with Soul Pixie Productions and the DC Public Library, presents “In Her Words”, a series celebrating the lives of African-American women. "In her Words", a theatrical musical presentation will examine the lives of artists Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Zora Neale Hurston and Lucille Clifton — creative women who used their artistic prowess to ignite and support social and political movements.
Tracy has been cast in the role of Zora Neale Hurston. She shares, “I am overjoyed about the opportunity to portray Zora. Last year, I won a PBS contest where I responded to the question of what woman inspires me most by paying homage to Zora. My bedroom, living room, work station, and even my Facebook page are decorated with images of Zora. OK, I am a little obsessed so when offered this role, there was no way that I was turning it down. Although this will be my adult acting debut, I am proud to step up to the stage to carry forth the spirit of creativity, passion, and boldness that embodied Zora and the other womanifesting artists that will be represented by an electrifying cast in this production. Zora said that ‘Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to jump at de sun. We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground."’ so be it!”
