Mosaic on the Move - "Queens Girl in Africa"

Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, 1 p.m.

The library is excited to host Mosaic Theater for free versions of their most recent performances. Now part of the 2018 Women’s Voices Theater Festival, Queens Girl in Africa picks back up with Jacqueline Marie Butler as she and her family sail to Nigeria following the assassination of her father’s close friend, Malcolm X. Performed by Helen Hayes Award-winner Erika Rose (In Darfur, An Octaroon, Unexplored Interior), this is a touching coming-of-age story of a woman finding her place in Civil War-torn Nigeria. Part of Mosaic’s new Locally Grown initiative.

The library will host Mosaic Theater performances at eight neighborhood libraries. Each performance still start at 7 p.m. and be followed by a discussion with Mosaic performers and staff:
