Program Description


A Musical One-Woman Show, "A Journey" will be performed by award-winning actor and singer Kimberly Wilson who wrote this show. This very special event will be presented by Wilson at the Ridgefield Library on March 5, 2023 from 2 - 4 PM. This program is co-hosted by the League of Women Voters of Ridgefield and is offered in partnership with the Ridgefield Historical Society.

Wilson is the award-winning creator and actor of A JOURNEY: Musical One-Woman Show about the Black experience as told by a Black woman. In this powerful performance, seven women, whose lives span hundreds of years, tell their stories of faith, hope, and a sense of calling that truly has helped shape American history.

Love and truth form the foundation of this inspirational performance. The women featured in the show like Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks and more had the courage to make their dreams a reality that not only elevated their own lives, yet also helped lay the foundation for future generations.

Through song, movement, and dialogue Kimberly brings these characters, and their triumphs and truths to life. Each performance is immediately followed by an audience talkback.
