Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years

May 5 - Jun 10, 2018 In the Albert

"Life is short. It's up to you to make it sweet." – Sadie Delany

ADAPTED FROM THE BOOK BY SARAH L. DELANY AND A. ELIZABETH DELANY WITH AMY HILL HEARTH

Trailblazers, activists and best friends, the Delany sisters—103-year-old Sadie and Bessie, age 101—take us on a “provocative and entertaining” (The New York Times) journey of triumphs over prejudice in times of social unrest. Celebrate the story of a century as lived by “two strong, vibrant women dispensing joy and wisdom” (Chicago Tribune) in this funny and heartfelt family drama based on the bestselling memoir.
