Join Tamara Smiley Hamilton in a one-woman show as she reads from her memoir: Diary of a Watts Princess: Lessons from A Blessed Life. The presentation takes the audience on a journey with one African-American woman from the segregated south on the historic Black migration to urban Los Angeles. The guiding question is “What happened to the girl who grew up with major historical events: the Civil Rights Movement, the Watts Rebellion of 1965, the assassinations (Kennedys, Dr. King, Malcolm X) and the ‘60s in general?” This program is for educational purposes only; there will be no solicitation or obligations of attendees.
