The Story:
HAVING OUR SAY, THE DELANY SISTERS’ FIRST 100 YEARS Originally from the South, the sisters moved to New York in response to the Jim Crow law period. They survived racism and sexism, proving they could achieve the “unachievable.” Through humor and pathos these ladies relive many of the pivotal moments which shaped their incredible lives. Seeking actors in their 50’s, 60’s or 70’s to portray these roles.

Elizabeth “Bessie” Delany / Female / 50-80 years old
101 years old; was the third of ten Delany children; vivacious, emotional and an outspoken advocate for civil rights; graduated from Columbia University’s School of Dental and Oral Surgery and became the second African-American woman
licensed to practice dentistry in NYC.
Ethnicity: Black / African Descent

Sarah “Sadie” Delany / Female / 50-80 years old
103 years old; was the second of ten Delany children; more quiet in her determination, she earned a Masters degree from Columbia University and was the first African-American woman to teach domestic science at public high schools in New York City.
Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
