Woodie Award nominee Miss Fannie Belle Lebby performed her one woman show, “Ladies of the Blues”, including portrayals of blues artist/jazz singer Alberta Hunter and comedienne Moms Mabley at The Space. Fannie Belle Lebby has merged her active performing career with activist work such as Jobs for Justice. Miss Freida Wheaton’s Salon 53 sponsored the evening’s performance. Freida’s own poems added mightily to the evening.
