Community Event: The Woman Who Would Be King A Celebration of Women’s History Month
March 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In honor of Women’s History Month, the National Museum of African Art will celebrate one of history’s most incredible women and rulers of ancient Egypt,
Hatshepsut—and strong women everywhere! Award-winning actor, writer, director, producer, and designer Esosa E. will perform her one-women show “The Woman Who Would Be King” (produced by Esosa E., Mansa Colabs, and Roselynn Lewis). Then, create hieroglyphic-inspired jewelry with artist Lucy Dirksen, explore a mini-garden of Nile River plants, celebrate the history of Egyptian makeup with master face-creator Mia Leslie, and snack on light refreshments from our own EWI alumnae, Aida Mady!
The museum is pleased to present Esosa E.’s performance in collaboration with Mansa Colabs, an organization generously supported by Brussels Airlines; the Humanities Council of Washington, D.C.; African Ancestry; Afrinection, Inc.; Loc Lov at Kuts Cuts & On the Hill; Eyob Solutions, LLC; Naomi Hirabayashi; Raymond Lambert; and Zed’s Cafe.
