Ursula Rucker

My Father's Daughter

February 6 – 7, 2015
Harold Prince Theatre
PLA Presents

Her art is for social change. Philadelphia-born poet, activist and recording artist Ursula Rucker bares heart and soul through poetry. My Father’s Daughter is a live, epic poem accompanied by music and video imagery that tells Rucker’s painful but victorious survival story. The wounded life of her mother informs the daughter, creating the artist and woman Rucker is today.

Please note: this performance contains mature themes.
