“American Black Princess” is a celebration of  the growth of an American woman as she becomes a powerful, creative, progressive force in the world.  "American Black Princess" is "A rose trying to grow within the cement cracks”. This Royal story is told through the eyes of Women of Color with poetry, music and dance.  This is a universal message of Love, Hope and Triumph for all women.
