Paradigm Shift Presents: Dangerous Territory
PARADIGM SHIFT: NYC'S FEMINIST COMMUNITY Proudly Presents
DANGEROUS TERRITORY
A one-woman play about Mary White Ovington, Co-Founder NAACP
dramatic reading by playwright Clare Coss
with a discussion moderated by
Jamia Wilson, Vice President of Programs at the Women's Media Center

Ovington rebelled against the expectations of her family and became the first white woman in 20th century America to dedicate her life to racial justice.
DANGEROUS TERRITORY dramatizes Ovington's journey beyond the narrow confines of her comfortable New York home. We meet a cast of dynamic characters whose virtues and contradictions propel her along the way: from the careless white boys at the Greenpoint Settlement to the adversarial African-American leaders, Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. Miss Ovington and Dr. DuBois forged a vigorous and spirited friendship. Their alliance led to the founding of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
"DANGEROUS TERRITORY puts history, hope and a wrongfully unknown early heroine of the civil rights movement on the stage. This is drama at its best-entertaining and educating."
Julian Bond, Board Chairman, NAACP
