This post is simple because I’m in awe at the beauty of the characters, Fela Kuti’s cowives, or “queens”, portrayed in the Broadway performance Fela!  Though the “queens” have no lines in this explosive story of Fela’s political activism, rebellion, and Afrobeat music, their story is a one that speaks loudly.  See their strength and vibrancy conveyed in these images courtesy of Chad Batka of The New York Times.
