Garden City, NY — In Sistas on Fire! A Newsical, the personal becomes the political when passionately opinionated African American women speak their minds in a soul stirring mix of song, dance, poetry and prose. The interrelated dramatic monologues examine pressing social issues from an African American female perspective.

Performed January 24-26 and January 29 through February 2, 2020 at the Mainstage Theatre, Sistas on Fire! A Newsical was written by NCC professors Marcia McNair and Anissa Moore. It’s directed by Juson Williams.
