TBD: Mary’s Daughter Memoirs of an Artivist

Mary’s Daughter: Memoirs of an Artivist is a one woman play about the life and times of Melanie Carter, artistically known as the Hip Hop Artivist, Blak Rapp Madusa. An autobiographical satire filled drama that seeks to contextualize black women’s lives as a complex interaction of identities and illustrate the intersecting issues of race gender, religion, activism and mass incarceration with hip hop as a lens to view cultural climate in which they exist.

This 75minute play expounds on the definition of Black feminist artistic resistance, taking the audience on a journey through my world, as a formerly incarcerated ,bi sexual muslim ,activist, artist. I use Five monologues, original poetry, Rap songs and dance each scene reflective of a different part of my life journey.
