The Rhythm/Da Blues written & performed by E.E. Wade
Lena was raised by a family of storytellers in Birmingham, Alabama. When it's her turn to take the mic, she had plenty to say but not enough courage to spit it. That’s when her auntie, Miss B. Darling, a transwoman, business owner, and queen of rhythm steps in to teach Lena how to find herself while finding the beat. Playing multiple characters, Wade brings her own brand of southern charm and ferocious wit to this celebration of family, first loves, and #BlackGirlMagic.
