October 2015

Black Ensemble Theater

On October 9, 2015, the women traveled to the Black Ensemble Theater to see "Black White Love."

Responses from the Women of Leslie's Place:

"Dear Ms. Brown,

Thank you for the night at the theater.  It was a treat beyond measure.  I enjoyed myself thoroughly.  You really turned around my stressful events of the week."


"Dear Ms. Brown,

Thank you so much for taking us to the Black Ensemble Theater to see Black White Love.  I really enjoyed the show and the venue was just wonderful.  The minimalism of the set really made the music, singing, acting, and choreography stand out.  I saved my program for my sister, a big Roger Ebert fan.  She has read his autobiography, and I would not be surprised if she took in a performance herself!  Thank you again for treating us to such a delightful evening."

This was a memorable experience for the ladies. They were fascinated seeing a live show.

Responses from the Women of Leslie's Place:

What I got out of the play that racism came from the 1800’s present all the way to now. That some people are still the same way was back in the Days and that you should not be judge by the color of your skin. Nice play.
- Rhonda

The play truly taught us how prejudice the court system was still is today. It also taught our history that Jackie Robinson wasn’t the first to play professional baseball as a black player. It was a remarkable play and very interesting. 
- Towan

I enjoyed the play it was history that I didn’t know anything about unreality Gamut is still in our every day lives.
