Actress, vocalist, writer, print model, voice-over talent, tarot card reader, mother, grandmother, eternal student and irrepressible World Dancer, Mamie~Louise Anderson is nothing if not versatile.  Recognizing this quality in others, she seeks to broaden the palette from which women of color are drawn. This new work does just that, offering the unexpected and unusual commonalities of ten contemporary women.  Seldom, if ever, are such stories exhibited on the big or small screen. Be they individualistic or tradition-bound; the life force of these woman hums in the background of American experience, sometimes a lullaby and sometimes a moan, but seldom a whimper. Anderson wants the world to hear this music, see these colors and know these women by heart.
