Hello! Y’all good? I’m Jeanette Hill, the founder and artistic director of JWHill Productions LLC. I am what people call a creative activist. I created a world called The Amen Circle. This is a place where the people lead real lives with real problems and often real solutions. To learn more about The Amen Circle, go over to the www.jeanettewhill.com website! It’s full of original stories about real life, the way that Black people live it. After all, it’s my only point of reference.
I tell these stories not just to entertain and enlighten. After almost every performance, someone tells me that they experienced that situation or that a particular character reminded them of their Aunt Marie or Cousin Ray. People like you and me-of a certain age- who have experienced similar stories can see themselves or possibly someone they know in these stories. The trials and triumphs of living here. You know, the time you picked the wrong significant other and had to deal with the ‘I told you so’, looks from family and friends.
