Examiner.com review of Black Footnotes
[Director and writer Rajendra] Maharaj tells the stories of these pioneering women scientists in his documentary play through music and memory, and their courageous story hurdles from present to past; tragedy to triumph. “Black Footnotes”, at its core, is a tribute to four of the thousands of important black women whom history has forgotten,” said producer Adam Mace. “It’s an honor to tell the world about their courage, love, journey and success.” Indeed, a cast of 29 actors brings the powerful and often dramatic stories to life. There are moments of sublime beauty, and, at times, horror and shame.
