he New York Times showed Caleen Sinnette Jennings' breakout play Queens Girl in the World plenty of love when it debuted in 2015. Now, the playwright's back on the theatrical scene with its sequel, Queens Girl in Africa. With local Helen Hayes Award-winning actress Erika Rose in the starring role, the play picks back up with Jacqueline Marie Butler as she and her family sail to Nigeria following the assassination of her father's close friend, Malcolm X. Mosaic Theater Company brings the world premiere of this touching coming-of-age story to the stage at D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center.
