Congresswoman Maxine Waters and legendary singer Florence LaRue (The Fifth Dimension) have confirmed their participation in a wonderful stage production, “Women Making a Difference.” Presented by the National Congress of Black Women, Inc., Los Angeles Chapter, this production is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 24, 4 p.m., at the Lula Washington Dance Theatre, 3773 Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles, California.

An artistic journey from the paved roads of Sojourner Truth (former slave, abolitionist and women’s rights activist) to Congresswoman Shirley Chisolm (first African American woman elected to Congress), “Women Making a Difference” is a special presentation depicting the rise of the African American woman to her present position in today’s society.

“Not only are we inviting everyone to come out and have a great time in celebration of Black History Month, but the proceeds from this fundraising event allows us to continue offering unparalleled programs and services in our communities,” said Judy Matthews, chair of the National Congress of Black Women, Inc. For 30 years, this nonprofit 501(c)(3) has operated nationally and internationally. The Los Angeles chapter was formed to join the fight for improvement of communities through educational, political, economical and cultural development of African American women and their families.
