My Walk Has Never Been Average is a compelling, multi-media presentation based on the lives of women whose stories are never told. Adapted for the stage from in-depth, first-person interviews with Black women in all aspects of construction, these stories reveal great inner strength and accomplishment in the face of the multiple oppressions facing Black working-class women in America. These are stories of families and communities, of fighting for survival and achieving success, and of relationship dynamics when women move out of nontraditional roles. With humor, courage and gut-wrenching honesty, the women of My Walk Has Never Been Average will open your mind and touch your heart. The August Wilson Red Door Project will host a talk back following the performance. Sponsored by Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc.
