"Ask a Black Woman" is a masterclass in solo performance, and Shanara Sanders is a master at her craft. She is tapped into both herself and the Big Picture in a potent and omnipotent way.... full review

Shanara pulls the audience in immediately and then gives a one two punch to the gut. And she doesn't let up. Five minutes in, I was cringing to hear each new part of her story unfold. As painful as it was to watch, I wanted more. This show is an amazing experience. At the end of it I felt heavy, like it was hard to get up out of my seat. But it was a good 'heavy.' It was a 'heavy' born of better understanding. ... full review

DENISE LEWIS certified reviewer June 28, 2019
I went last night, to support this young woman's artistry. I was thoroughly entertained, and definitely was on the "I IDENTIFY TOO MUCH" list. I felt she told too much of Black women's "business"! * screaming laughter * This babygirl is hilarious, gifted at her impersonations, REAL AND RAW AND CHICAGO-ON-DOWN! Shanara is precious. I am looking forward to supporting her work through the years ahead. Very gifted young woman. Poet, actress, songstress, comedian, etc! ... full review

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.... full review

Shanara Mouthpiece Sanders gave a powerfully impactful performance! She flowed artfully between prose and spoken word, dancing, singing, and unapologetically spitting truths. I’d gladly come see her perform again!... full review
