MEET THE ACTORS
Benjamin Rowe is a New York native from Queens. He has been part of the theatre scene in various ways since 2000. With each production he seeks to grow not only as an actor, also as a human being. He anticipates, working alongside such artists as the Afrikan Luv Company will ensure that his growth continues. Words can hardly convey how grateful he is to be part of this uplifting and inspiring collective. Most recently, Ben appeared in a revival of the play "Sly Fox” as well as Black Spectrum's production of "The Friendship Express”, an educational presentation geared toward children. He will next appear in the play "Leaves” as part of the Strawberry One Act Festival in March. Ben would like to thank Jawanza Bakari for putting pen to paper and writing, "The Passage: Stories from the Maafa,” as well as extended thanks to ALL the members of this wonderful, thought-provoking production. Last but not least, Ben thanks his wife, Dawn, and their children, Julian, Da'wren, Jahanna, and Indirabelle. Without their love, support, and life-giving energy, his endeavors would NOT be possible!

The Passage: Stories form The Maafa

On August 20, 1619, the first enslaved Africans arrived at the British colony in Jamestown Virginia. Four hundred years later in the year 2019, "The Passage: Stories from the Maafa" will arrive at the National Black Theatre in Harlem.

Come join us in honoring all enslaved Africans who were stolen from their homes and scattered throughout the "New World." Come hear their stories of strength, courage, determination and of their sacrifices that made it possible for us to be here today.

Come be a part of the “ultimate love story.” Come experience "The Passage: Stories from the Maafa.” It's a journey like no other.

Daughters of the Stone follows the lives of five generations of Afro-Puerto Rican women focusing on the legacy passed from one generation to the next. How does each generation deal with that legacy given changing environments, culture? How does the environment change the legacy? What happens to communication when language and culture are truncated? What legacy does a woman who owns nothing, not even her own body, leave for her daughter? What happens to a storyteller when she can no longer tell her stories? Can one build for the future without coming to terms with the past?
