What I liked

Literally all of it. I loved the poetic elements and the singing. The slides saying “Ask a Black Woman At Work” made me feel like I was reading chapters in a book, which was a very cool and clever way of introducing the audience to the next story in her life. I liked the use of the staircase, I could picture the scene as it was happening because Shanara is so dedicated to her work. She goes all in without hesitance. There were so many moments where I pictured her just dropping a mic and walking off-stage. This show is that good

What I didn't like

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like

My overall impression

Absolutely stellar show. I would watch this again. Shanara knocks it out of the park the second she walks onto that stage. She is fierce, unabashed, brave. This show is important because it is about a woman reclaiming her time and space in a world that so often takes those from her. Thank you Shanara for gifting us with these stories.
