Why Shouldn't I?
Some stories have to be seen to be believed. We have watched Black Women throughout history make diamonds from coal. In that respect, Willie Esther Williams is no different. So why should we, Verse, Inc. help tell her story? It is a story fraught with tragedy, perseverance, bravery, triumph and even humor. What strength is and how it is defined is found in how we bear our journeys. This one-woman show, is the story of Ms. Williams’ journey. Her book, soon to follow, entitled, “Why Shouldn’t I” tells her life from the ghetto that is Gary, Indiana, the raising of 6 boys to young men, the tricky navigation of relationships, relocations, rethinking and the reach for dreams. This March 16th, Women’s History Month, is when we will showcase this woman’s story.
