Event Description

Singer, actress, film maker, and author Susheel Bibbs is an Emmy winning PBS producer who has created, directed, and performed in several award-winning independent documentary films. 

 Her new film, Voices of freedom chronicles The Hyers Sisters, 1880’s black opera divas from Sacramento California, who changed American musical theater.  

Nearly forgotten, the Hyers Sisters, Anna and Emma, were African American opera singers in the 19th-century who toured the US from the 1871 to 1894. The sisters, who lived in Sacramento, left promising opera careers to  create the first civil-rights musicals. A famous opera singer in her own right, Susheel has set her film release on PBS later this year. On August 12th, you can learn the story of Miss Bibbs and her amazing new film. Don't miss it.
