What's happening to America?
Since the economic crash of 2008, millions who once thought themselves financially secure, have found themselves plummeting over a cliff into poverty – extreme poverty. Some point scapegoating fingers. Others struggle to figure it out.
Now, Elizabeth White – one among the far-too-many – tells the story in FAKING NORMAL, a book about what’s been happening to her and others in a similar predicament. She’s telling uncomfortable truths and offering healing prescriptions for societal change. It’s an inspiring show about making a life – even when you’re not making a living.
There’s the music of singer Abbey Lincoln and two amazing “comeback kids” whose careers took surprising upswings – Blues singer Alberta Hunter, at 82; and composer/pianist Eubie Blake at 95!
Here's a link to Elizabeth's website and her book.
