Vibrant, funny and inspirational – 24Words is a non-stop, 100-minute odyssey for equality, starting with the Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence (when men declared “all men are created equal”) to the historic events of March 22, 1972 – when women were almost equal, pot was almost legal and contraceptives could be sold to “unmarried people.”
20 original songs inspired by the Equal Rights movement: classical, swing, folk, rockabilly, pop, rock and glam.
Luis David Cortes
