THE 6th ANNUAL SOUL OF A POWERFUL WOMAN is a fundraising performance to help raise funds for the Black Ensemble Theater to support our mission of eradicating racism through the theater arts. Co-created by Jackie Taylor and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky in 2013, Soul of A Powerful Woman has become a premier annual event raising more than $300,000 to support Black Ensemble Theater programs including our Educational Outreach programs impacting thousands of underserved youth each year as well as our Stellar, award-winning Five Play Season of Excellence. These powerful women give their time and financial support to the theater because they all believe in the power of women! It’s amazing that these very powerful women in politics, business, and entertainment take the stage to act, sing and dance while educating and uplifting the audience helping them to understand and celebrate the power of women. Many, many great women leaders of Chicago participate to help make this woman lead, woman, sponsored, and woman united campaign be the success that it has become.
