I am Queen: Charlotte

Mar 3, 2024 Belk Theater

  • Pricing:
    Starting at $24.50
  • Presented by:


For this brand new show, we asked our community to nominate Black women from within Charlotte who make this city better to be considered for our Spring 2024 Class of Queens. With more nominations than we could have imagined, the stories that folks shared about these amazing women were inspiring, powerful, and uplifting.

The twenty chosen women show up in many powerful ways for our community, their families, and themselves. They are more than their jobs or what they “do” in the world. They are a collection of stories and experiences that add richness and depth to our world.

Dr. Nikki Jones-Bailey - "A Legacy Building Queen"
Melody Gross - "A Free Queen" Dr. Janaka Lewis - "A Literary Queen" Shante Burke-Hayer - "A Purpose-Full Queen" Ayisha McMillan Cravotta - "A Queen Holding Memories" Nakia Savage - "A Luxurious Queen" Tyyawdi Hands - "An Honorable Queen" Deborah Phillips - "A Healed Queen" Rubie Britt-Height - "A Community Queen" Tina Marshall - "A Human Queen" Valeria Washington - "A Sisterhood Queen" Bilqis Shareef  - "A Designing Queen" A.

We share the stories of some so that we can honor the stories of ALL of us.


Live on stage at the Belk Theater, I Am Queen Charlotte is an entertaining and thought-provoking production that shares the heartwarming, heartbreaking, open-hearted true stories of real Black women who call Charlotte home. These stories are spoken and performed by a cast of all Black women. Additions of music and movement bring these stories to life. This production not only highlights the diversity, power, and beauty of the women who help make the city thrive, but it reminds us of the history, the present, and the future of Charlotte.
