Review for WOMEN OF DIVERSITY PRODUCTIONS INC, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Several years ago, I offered to maintain Women of Diversity's [WOD] web-site; eventually to reDesign and maintain it. I was attracted to this organization due to the passion I observed by Dr. M. Adrian; a passion for truth and a need for public awareness of women who have and do contribute greatly to our community. The whole organization rings true with a unified passion and their message is presented as documented, personal truth. Those who view WOD's productions are reminded and encouraged to become of aware of one individuals ability to enhance their environment, even over and through the harshest opposition. In particular, I have seen Kim Russell portray Sojourner Truth in a monologue at the library celebrating Black History month. WOD was filming the live performance that captured this impassioned person recapturing a monumental story of a woman claiming and proclaiming herself when at one time she was not her own to claim. The production that WOD released can be checked out of our Las Vegas library and viewed by all. The film reminds me that freedom is not free and that I must assert myself to become the best I can inspite of oppostition. As a participant, I enjoyed a hands-on workshop where Dr. Adrian worked with a group of locals. Her focus, her passion, and her profession, "Women in Motion" [also the title of one of Dr. Adrian's books] took our group through motion. I took home the message that simple and proper motion does not have to be strenous in order to promote health. It was a fun workshop and ended to quickly for me. For the 100 Years project, I helped photograph schools as well as update their web-site. Dr. Adrian gives of her time generously, driven by her passion for the projects she works on. One of the first projects I assisted her with was teaching at the local youth center. Her goal was to give these youth a self-expression in the form of a web-page. And as needed, I helped moved whatever needed to be simply becuase I enjoy the interactions I have with the members of the organization. In short, from President Marlene Adrien to its active members, Women of Diversity is about honoring and empowering women by acknowledging past achievements as well as motivating future accomplishments.
