Following the 2019 release of "Not Without Black Women", an original book of poems by author Rebecca Dupas, A DOSE OF DUPAS and the 2019 DC Black Theater & Arts Festival present a 90-minnute performance of poetry and song to honor the perspective, passion, and power of Black women. The show will feature original works by Rebecca Dupas with special guests Theresa Tha Songbird, Christen B, and more. Join us as we explore navigating the world as Black women. Journey with us through the beauty of being Black, the micro-aggressions of the workday, the relentless trauma of the news cycle, the power of love, and the infallible resilience of femininity.
