viBeStages Winter Show!
Through Our Eyes: A Black Girl's Perspective written and performed by the ladies of viBeStages Fall 2017 After-School program, is an imagining of a day in the life of the "Leesburg Girls," 12 African-American girls aged 13-15 who were detained in substandard living conditions and removed from contact from their families in Leesburg, GA for two months, in 1963. Their crime? Protesting segregation. Through Our Eyes calls upon each of us to remember those whose stories are still untold, and protect the stories of those who are with still with us.

"Maze Behind My Identity, written and performed by the ladies of viBe Stages Fall 2017 Residency, explores coming of age as young black women in America, and what that means and, entails. The play explores growing up in America in 2017, and ponders what will be necessary for young black women to live full lives, even at 17. Through honest and courageous writing, these young artists tackle issues like gender equity, sexual harassment/abuse, misogynoir, depression, food justice, self-hatred and JOY. These fearless young women encourage you lean into discomfort as they share their truths.
