"I Know Women" Soliloquies of Feminine Comprehension is a pros, poetry and monologue collection of historical and laywomen's innermost contemplations on success and struggle. This multimedia theatrical work intertwines technology, song, dance, and audience participation as it features Makeda Kumasi's "Lift", a Contemporary Acro Afric Dance to an a cappella version of the Black National Anthem, “Dee’s Call” a monologue reenactment of the 2012 Treyvon Martin final call with Rachel Jeantel, and a video chat session with “Patricia Bath” the first African American woman to receive a medical patent, as well as personal narratives from residence of the San Bernardino and Riverside communities.
