“Say it Flo” by Michelle Tyrene Johnson
March 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Say it Flo” written by award winning playwright Michelle Tyrene Johnson, pays homage to Missouri born Florynce Kennedy. An Attorney/Activist Florynce worked as an activist for feminism and civil rights on cases that not only damaged black people, but they also damaged women, gay people, ex-prison inmates, prostitutes, children, old people, handicapped people, and native Americans. Kennedy was one of the lawyers in the Abramowitz v. Lefkowitz case, the class action suit that wanted to repeal New York’s strict abortion laws which used women who suffered from illegal abortions as expert witnesses instead of relying on physicians. These tactics were eventually used in the Roe v. Wade case, in 1973, which overturned restrictive abortion laws.
