Confessions of an exSuperwoman:
A One-Woman Show
Confessions of an exSuperwoman is a one-woman show based on the life of Dr. Kimberly J. Chandler. In 2011, Dr. Chandler began a blog entitled “Confessions of an exSuperwoman” as an opportunity to chronicle her feelings, revelations and observations as a Black woman engaged in a healing journey from the ravages of psychological, physical and sexual abuse. Like many African American women, Dr. Chandler experienced the consequences of living Black in America as a large, independent, self-sufficient, assertive, strong, Black woman; an identity space fraught with complexities, challenges, and contradictions. An accomplished performance artist, scholar, professor, minister and entrepreneur, Dr. Chandler uses her Confessions to discuss the realities of living between the tensions of her authentic self and the person everyone else needed her to be: a space and place Black women are made to inhabit quite regularly.
