GirlTrek After Dark- Theater- A Reading of Community Organized!
This is an evening of theater. Join me for...
5 short plays written by Jeanine T. Abraham
directed by Shannon Patterson
This is the era to take a stand, but generations of African American Women have been standing up for our entire lifetimes.
Community Organized! is a collection of five short plays, centering the unique experience of American Black Women and Girls who reside on the front lines of activism in our communities while leading the dominant culture with our style, resilience, humor and beauty while (the majority of us) are invisibly visible in America.
Well, not today ya’ll! Community Organized! shares the unique perspective of the times we are living in from the African American Female perspective.
Experience an evening of Black Woman Joy from the inside out and leave...the evening inspired, and ready.
Writer, Producer, Actor - Jeanine T. Abraham was inspired to write and produce these plays during the 2016 election cycle and after the election results.

The audience is welcome to stay for a post reading facilitated conversation (with snacks and libations) about the state of progressive activism. We will share ideas on how to build authentic cross racial relationships between progressive Black Women and progressive White Women while we resist and work towards creating authentic change we CAN live in.
VisAbleblackwoman Productions is an African American owned production company committed to making Black Women’s stories visible to preserve our legacies.
Groundshift is a collective of activists committed to creating experiences grounded in civic empowerment, transformation, and creative community building.
