Durham reinterprets home and reimagines the storied lives of black women by fusing her experience with those described by author Robin M. Boylorn in Sweetwater. Boylorn privileges African diasporic storytelling traditions, such as orality. Durham employs them and provides a complementary performance narrative to recount Southern black girlhood in Sweetwater NC, and Tidewater, VA.
