Jonathan gives special love and thanks to Guinea Bennett-Price and Anyika McMillan-Herod (Soul Rep), Teresa Coleman Wash (Bishop Arts Theatre Center), Regina Washington (African American Repertory Theater), Will Power, vickie washington, and Vicki Meek (South Dallas Cultural Center) – without their vision, commitment, and generosity – none of this would be possible.
