A Song for Coretta PassinArt

PassinArt: A Song for Coretta

A Song for Coretta by Pearl Cleage is an inspiring tribute to Coretta Scott King (1927-2006). It tells the story of five Black women from different backgrounds waiting outside the Ebenezer Baptist Church with other mourners to pay their final respects to the late civil rights activist. The women share their situations and stories of Mrs. King’s influence and perseverance.

PassinArt is an African American producing theatre company whose “mission is to educate, entertain, and celebrate our culture while highlighting issues that impact the community.” PassinArt produces three or more mainstage productions, theatrical workshops for youth and adults, staged readings, and unique cultural events in the Portland Metropolitan area, and will soon celebrate its 40 years of existence as the longest-producing African American theatre company in Oregon. We pass on art, history, and culture from one generation to another. Learn more at passinart.org
