She Speaks - Victory Grill - January 27, 2007

A day late and a dollar short... She Speaks @ Victory Grill... tonight, Jan 27th @ 8pm... get your tix here.

From the flyer...

"This charged performance infuses jazz, poetry, hip hop, and acoustic music with a Generation X twist. Narrated by artistic director E. Christopher “Cocktails” Cornell, She Speaks features Khalilah Ali, Kelly Love Jones and Renita Walls and forges a new image of women in hip hop. Leaving behind old stereotypes, the performers weave a vibrant, edgy story of contemporary women and the many hats they wear, They’re more than wives, mothers, lovers, providers and friends; that’s why She Speaks."

Friend just sent me this dope video...
