Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is proud to present “52 Weeks of Women,” which will complement True Colors’ 17thseason: She Griots. In his first year as Artistic Director at True Colors, Jamil Jude curated this season to uplift Black women, who are among the most historically underrepresented faces in regional theatre, both on and off the stage.

With this year-long celebration, we will recognize a different “shero” on our website and on social media, sharing their stories and honoring their impact in the community.  Each Friday, a new honoree will be featured.
