However, after her father abandons the family, Jewel turns to her best friend and musical confidant, Lucas Lattimore, for comfort; resulting in a situation, that causes Jewel to be sent to live in Chicago with family members. After the sudden dissappearance of Lucas and spending the next 10 years Jewel cleaning the house of prominent club proprietor, Paul “Slim” Pickens, owner of the Black Swan Room; By chance, Jewel is discovered and given a chance to live out her dream. In the meantime, unbeknownst to Jewel, Lucas has not been far behind and in a twist of fate, the blessings of their dreams might be the source of her BLUES!
Each and every character of "Little Black Girl's Blues" was clearly
thought-out; each individual role no matter how large or small was key to making the story line flow as it did with solid drama fused with smart characterized humor. Most all of the actors maximized the
potential of their roles. I loved it and I would love to see it again.

I attended Little Black Girls Blues on Saturday June 04, 2011 8:pm. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the play. Having attended many plays around the Atlanta area, over the years, this was truly a good time. For her first shot out of the box Ms. (Hunter)Wade did a great writing job, along with her acting. It was a snazzy, kinetic, hot and hilarious... must see. It’s a great tribute to the toe-tapping song and dance era of the 1930’s, with a cast of phenomenally skillfull singers and actors. If anyone is a fan of the music and sound of the Harlem renaissance, you won’t want to miss it if it comes back!
Went on Saturday night and thought it was just GREAT! It was a very professional production and had a great story.

I would like to commend you for such an Excellent stage play and
performance. I found it to be very enjoyable especially the singers they
were all so great. I also appreciated that you reached out to the
younger generation, if we allow them to live their dream now they will
always believe they can do anything if they only believe in. Please let me know when you schedule your next play. I would love to
attend as well as make others aware of your talent.

I was very pleased with the cast, the production and the length of this
stage play. I got the message of the producer. The cast was
exceptionally talented; the songs were gratifying of the times in which
the story was set. I will definitely attend future production. It was
one of the best plays I've seen in a few years. Many blessing to the
producer(s) and cast member for a performance well done!
