In five autobiographical vignettes, Charlayne Woodard tells the moving and inspirational tale of her African-American family through three generations of love, struggle, and triumph. A one-woman tour de force.More
L.A. Theatre Works has made an ongoing commitment to record "the greatest acting talent of our time performing the world's finest literature." Charlayne Woodard's moving autobiographical piece certainly finds itself at home among the other recordings in LATW's repertoire. In five vignettes about three generations of her African-American family, Woodard paints a vibrant family portrait that is infused with humor, as well as solemnity. The recording is live, as are all L. A. Theatre Works' productions, and the audience's reactions make a wonderful background to Woodard's energetic performance.

Wonderful Family Story
I Loved Everything about Charlayne's performance, especially the way she made you see/picture and understand each character.
Yes, I cried, but it was during the second time I listen to it!
Everythings better in the South (lol)! As much as I know this is not true, there were times when I did feel that way!
