NYC. We're presenting Jessica Frances Dukes' Mini Muse for The Muse Project. Having always been fascinated with ancestry and moments of the past, Jessica has chosen to trace her familial lineage. In the beginning, there was no doubt in her mind that her family was previously enslaved in America. What she was not prepared to discover, however, was that one of her maternal ancestors was also a slave-owner. The Muse Project is lucky enough to have the opportunity to continue developing this important piece and present it at a time when cultural history is an immediate and pressing social uncertainty and question. Nathan Alan Davis serves as Jessica's writing mentor, and Anna Lathrop is Jessica's dramaturge.
NYC. The incredible Michael Friedman passed away today. He was always so kind to me, warm and open-hearted. Many's favorite genius. Deeply saddened to hear of this loss. RIP Michael.
