A beautiful and awe-inspiring piece.
I first heard this mind blowing piece performed as part of the Big Boi (OutKast) and Atlanta Ballet’s production B.I.G. For those who did not see it, it was non-traditional epic.
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
