My Walk Has Never Been Average: A Staged Reading

Inspired by the lives of women whose stories are seldom told, My Walk Has Never Been Average is a multimedia presentation that documents the struggles and accomplishments of black tradeswomen in America. This staged reading, adapted from real one-on-one interviews, uses humor and humanity to explore the economic and personal dynamics these women face everyday. My Walk Has Never Been Average features eight of Portland's talented African American actors.

Written by Roberta Hunte and Bonnie Ratner
Directed by Catherine Ming T'ien Duffy
