The life of the late lawyer, educator and politician Barbara Jordan will be examined in City Lit Theatre's Voice of Good Hope.
Voice of Good Hope is being described as "a dramatic portrait" of Jordan's life.
Jordan ( 1936-96 ) was the first African American elected to the Texas Senate and the first Southern African American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Jordan ( who was lesbian ) is best known for her opening statement at the House Judiciary Committee hearings during the impeachment process against Nixon.
Performances will take place through Feb. 23, at the venue 1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., with previews Jan. 10-18. For tickets, visit www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4254900 .
