And So We Walked: An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears

Kick off Women's History Month by joining us for a special evening with DeLanna Studi, an award-winning Cherokee Nation actress, artist and activist. Studi will perform excerpts from her play, "And So We Walked," with a hosted reception to follow. "And So We Walked" tells the story of her 900-mile journey with her father along the Trail of Tears to understand her own identity and the conflicts of her nation. The Trail of Tears was traveled by more than 17,000 Cherokee in their forced relocation from their homeland. More than 6,000 Natives died along the way.

True West by Sam Shepard

Sibling rivalry takes center stage in this examination of family conflict that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1983. New York magazine described Sam Shepard as "the greatest American playwright of his generation," and “True West” shows why Shepard’s reputation is well-deserved.
