Spun around a solid core of more than 20 traditional spirituals and folk songs, "Black Pearl Sings!" tells the engaging Depression Era story of Susannah, an ambitious folklorist from the Library of Congress, and Pearl, a Texas prisoner with a soulful voice, steely spirit and an incredible collection of historic African-American music. Susannah's after the songs that will put her in the spotlight, and Pearl's angling at a chance for freedom, but the women find common ground in their struggle to find respect in a man's world -- and in Pearl's powerful music. Inspired by the real-life musical partnership of historian John Lomax and legendary folk singer-guitarist Lead Belly, "Black Pearl Sings!" comes to the Lyceum Space courtesy of the San Diego Repertory Theatre.

Isaac Oliver is an author who's not content just to sell books. No, he likes to also share his work in pubs and small theaters.
