(Jackson, MS) – NMHS Unlimited Film Productions (NMHS) is pleased to present the live production, “Walking in their Footsteps”, on Friday, June 13. The production, produced by Wilma E. Mosley Clopton, Ph.D. of NMHS, is designed to celebrate the lives of five women – Elizabeth Taylor Greenfield, Ida B. Wells Barnett, Eliza Farish Pillars, Annie Bell Robinson Devine and Gladys Noel Bates. These women are pioneers. They are just a few of the many women that have paved the way for others. The production incorporates their stories through song, dance, spoken word and film. “Walking in their Footsteps” is brought to life on stage by an amazingly talented group of actors, singers, dancers and technicians. They include Pamela Junior, narrator; Jerry Jenkins, West African drums, Bridgeet Olungabala, cello; Tiffany Jefferson, choreographer; Georgia Cochran, actor; Sonya Allen, actor/singer; Deanna Tisdale, actor/singer, Ted Davis, technician; David Skato, videographer/casting director. The cast of singers also includes the melodious tones of Adiola Braxton whose lyrical notes bring depth to the production’s supporting trio. Curtain goes up for “Walking in their Footsteps” at 6:00 p.m. at the Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center in Jackson. A question and answer session will take place after the production. A reception will follow allowing attendees to visit with the performers and musicians. Admission is $5.00 per person.
