Each year through donations to the Stauffacher Artist & Lecturer Endowment Fund, state grants, and activity fees, SFCC brings quality performances to the Sedalia campus through the Stauffacher Artist & Lecturer Series. The annual series has provided students and the surrounding communities with many opportunities to be educated and entertained.
"Ain't I a Woman!"
Feb. 29, 7:30 p.m.,
Free admission - doors open at 7 p.m.
Presented by the Core Ensemble, this is a chamber music theatre production involving an address and musicians who interact with each other to celebrate the lives and times of four significant African American women:
- Sojourner Truth, an ex-slave and abolitionist
- Clementine Hunter, a self-taught folk artist
- Zora Hurston, an anthropologist
- Fannie Hamer, a civil rights worker
The music is representative of their lives and times, so it draws heavily on spirituals, gospel and jazz.

This event is free and open to the public; tickets are not required.
