The play “Butterfly Confessions” will be performed April 2 at Ohio Wesleyan University by Sisters United, an OWU student group that promotes and raises awareness of multicultural women’s empowerment, fellowship and community involvement.
The play, which has been described as “a love letter to women of color” and brings awareness to domestic violence and HIV/AIDS, will be performed April 2 at 8 p.m. in the Studio Theatre inside Chappelear Drama Center, 45 Rowland Ave.
The performance is free.
Following the play, Tamara Winfrey Harris, author of “The Sisters are Alright: Changing the Broken Narrative for Black Women in America,” will facilitate a community dialogue about the play and other issues impacting today’s women of color.
Following the dialogue, Winfrey Harris will sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase at the event or in advance at the OWU Bookstore inside Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland.
Winfrey Harris also has published in or appeared on such media outlets as The New York Times, NPR’s “Weekend Edition,” Ms., The Guardian, The Huffington Post and Psychology Today.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from the Greenlee School of Journalism at Iowa State University, and also is a graduate of the Maynard Institute’s editing program for minority journalists.
Winfrey Harris’s visit is sponsored by Sisters United, the Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs and the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs.
