This February 14th, the Saint Paul Almanac welcomes Dr. Goddess to Saint Paul at 6:30 p.m. at Arnellia’s at 1183 University Avenue West, Saint Paul. No cover charge! This event is free!
Dr. Goddess (Kimberly C. Ellis) will star in a 15 character, one-woman show about a young urban woman’s journey into academia. A comedy, grounded in engaging social commentary, this witty show uses dramatic monologues, poetry, music, and African, jazz, Hip Hop dance and sketch comedy. If her uncle, August Wilson, were in the audience, he’d be as proud as the Saint Paul Almanac to sponsor this community-building event.
Kimberly C. Ellis, PhD., affectionately known as Dr. Goddess, is a Scholar of American and Africana Studies, an artist, activist, and entrepreneur who has impressed audiences everywhere.
“ . . . Ellis is among a cadre of women . . . who’ve shown that hip hop, feminism and racial upliftment can co-exist. Dr. Goddess is a promising and fulfilling new recipe for black theater’s future.”
