I Will Speak For Myself
"I Will Speak for Myself" is a stirring one-woman play that blends historical interpretation with performance and breathes life into slave narratives, personal letters and memoirs, diary entries, court records, poems, public addresses, and newspaper advertisements creating real identities that share these African-American women's experiences, struggles, and journeys in their own voices from Colonial times through the Civil War. The play is written and directed by Valerie Joyce, Associate Professor of Theatre at Villanova University and features Barrymore-nominated actress Kimberly S. Fairbanks, who can be seen and heard in numerous voice-overs, commercials, and independent films. Fairbanks has a Master's in Theatre from Villanova and  has performed with many regional theatres including Delaware Theater Company, InterAct Theatre Company, The Mint Theatre (off Broadway); NJ Repertory Company; and the Walnut Street Theatre.
