Angelina Weld Grimké: A Biography
Posted on: April 22, 2021
Living in a northern city at the turn of the 20th century, Rachel Loving is true to her name, exuding warmth and kindness while doting adoringly on any child she meets.
But when her mother reveals a brutal story from the family's past, Rachel is shaken to her core and is forced to confront what it really means to bring a Black child into this world.
Originally produced by the NAACP’s Drama Committee in Washington D.C. in 1916, Rachel is believed to be the first play by a Black woman professionally produced in the United States.
Running time: 3 hours
