After a matriarch’s death, the women in the family clean Grandma’s attic and find love and old memories packed away, and in the process, hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930’s through the Girl Groups of the ‘60s, to the empowerment of the ‘90s.  Songs include “Oh, Happy Day,” “Taint Nobody’s Business,” “I Will Survive,” “Tyrone,” “I am Not My Hair” and “A Woman’s Worth.”

Written by Dorothy Marcic and directed by Angela Somers.
