Says Andrea Baldwin: "I am Texan. I am Black. I am a Feminist. To be one or two of these things can cause slight disruption. To be all of them can cause massive controversy."
Lone Star Feminist explores the realization of the above identities through multiple notable icons in regional history. This performance interweaves both relational, para-social, spiritual, and professional experiences that give voice to a specific demographic and courage to the performer to claim and re claim again identities embedded in race, gender, and regional discourse.
