Local group to honor women’s endeavors in South production

   Black History Month celebrations, continue on South Campus with a play devoted to the honor of influential women in the black community.
   In a play for families, designed for children, the Delta Silhouettes 2 will feature the interactive renditions of four women.
   The play is Saturday, February 25, 6-9 p.m. in the South Campus Recital Hall SREC 1110.
   “ The purpose of the play is to highlight women in history who made a contribution to black society,” Ayoka Gay, Fort Worth alumnae chapter, said. “This year’s performance is going to be more interactive.”
   Delta Silhouettes 2 artists will pay homage to Aretha Franklin, recognized as the “Queen of Soul”; Ruby Dee, civil rights activist and actress; the late Shirley Chisholm, first black woman elected to U.S. Congress, and Judith Jamison, dancer and artistic director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
   The evening will begin with a silent auction and reception.
   The evening also includes recognition of the group’s annual Jabberwock Scholarship Pageant, a program that honors and awards academic achievement.
   “ Full proceeds from admissions and auction go toward scholarships for the participants in the 2006 Jabberwock court,” Gay said.
   Charlene Ayers, playwright and director, leads Delta Silhouettes 2 in its second year of performances.
   The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority originally began in 1913 and has active chapters around the United States.
   The Fort Worth chapter began in 1938 as Beta Rho and is still active as the renamed Fort Worth Alumnae.
   Tickets cost $5. For tickets, contact Ayers at 817-798-7464.
