On the day of a much-anticipated speech by Rosa Parks during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, four activists working in a Virginia civil rights office wonder whether the proclamation of equality amongst mankind includes women. With remarkable insight and unexpected humor, Cadillac Crew reclaims the stories of the forgotten leaders who blazed the trail for desegregation and women’s rights and asks: when will the world be ready to embrace women in all their capacity?
Staged managed by Jill Yetsky with stage directions being read by Jordan Sanders; featuring Saran Bakari, Quenna Lené Barrett, Danyelle Monson, and Brittany Yvonne Stokes.
