Scrapmettle Entertainment Group and The Drama Center at City Arts present Pearl Cleage's Flyin West May 17-20.
After the Civil War, many former slaves, anxious to leave the south and avoiding the dangers of Reconstruction, went west under the Homestead Act to build new lives. Many were black women who overcame tremendous odds to work their own land and make a place for themselves. Set in 1898, Flyin’ West is the story of African-American female pioneers who settled their own land, built their lives together and became their sisters keepers in the all-black town of Nicodemus, Kansas
