Pearl Cleage’s 1994 play, Flyin’ West is set in 1898, follows four black women as they lay claim to land in Nicodemus, an all-black Kansas town. The play is a powerful commentary on sisterhood, identity and race and is based on fact: in the late 19th century, many African Americans left the South to settle out West.
