1000 Ways a Black Woman Dies: Stories from the Waiting Room is a play based on real stories of discriminatory events that Black women have undergone in the United States. I am a firm believer that art can take the shape of the silenced and give them a voice. This play intends to reflect the voices of those we unfortunately never got to hear.
