Currently running off Broadway Sistas is a nonstop celebration of African American women told through Top-40 music, from Bessie Smith to Beyonce.

As they clean Grandma’s attic the women discuss their family history and the history of African-American women and find love and old memories packed away, as well as hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the 60s to the empowerment of the 90s. Songs include “Oh, Happy Day,” “Mama Said,” “I Will Survive,” “Tyrone,” “I am Not My Hair” and “A Woman’s Worth.”
