Artwork for Black Footnotes 

The play is inspired by the lives and achievements of four African American Scientists: Dr. Liza Anna Grier, a former slave who became the first African American female doctor in Georgia; Dr. Geraldine Pittman Woods, a leading African American Scientist in the study of neuroembryology; Dr. Jane Cooke Wright, who is known as the Mother of Chemotherapy; and Dr. Evelyn Boyd Granville, one of the first African American women to receive a Ph.D. in Mathematics in America and one of the first women to work at NASA. Told in music and memory, their courageous story hurdles from present to past; tragedy to triumph. Black Footnotes was commissioned through the Ensemble Studio Theatre Alfred P. Sloan Project and received a developmental reading at AMAS Musical Theatre.
