Dear Mr. Cox,

I thought you may be interested in one of my recent productions, as I understand it is the only theatrical piece in the country right now honoring the life of Cathay Williams, America’s only known female Buffalo Soldier. An excerpt from the play served as the kickoff for the Smithsonian’s Institution’s Women History Month Events in Washington, DC. ( educate.si.edu/heritage/ ). As this play gains wider exposure, I like to keep myself abreast of others who are helping to spread her story through various means. I welcome your correspondence.

Sincerely,

Melodie L.C. Thompson
Actor/Writer/Storyteller
