About Veils, the Musical—
Much has been written about the men lost in the Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter movements. Unexplored, however are the stories of the women whose lives are affected by these tragedies—the women who wear the "Veils."

“The surprise is that with Veils two such multitalented African American young men have undertaken this profoundly womanist theme with such deep empathy and authentic respect. This, to my knowledge, is a first in theatre history” ~‪‬

“Gut-wrenching, eye-opening, and inspiring Veils– is a scrapbook, a dream book; a record of women’s work.” ~‪‬

“Tackles roles ranging from Sybrina Fulton and Mamie Till to Jacqueline Kennedy and Viola Liuzzo.” ~The Washington Informer

“I’m thrilled that my mother’s story is one being told in this production which brings history to life and to light.” ~Mary Liuzzo, daughter of civil rights martyr Viola Liuzzo

“Often these voices and fighters get lost in history. But not this time.” ~Sandra Evers-Manly
