My Heart is Still Shaking, written by Marjorie Shostak, Anthropologist, and Brenda Bynum, Playwright, Emory University. Read by GTC Students: Sarah Smith Welliver & Shayla Reid.
MY HEART IS STILL SHAKING is a conversation between Nisa, a !Kung San woman of the Kalahari Desert and Marjorie Shostak, an anthropologist studying the !Kung San. The conversation takes place between the years 1969, when Marjorie first goes into the field, and 1993, when Marjorie, after battling breast cancer, returns to the Kalahari to find Nisa.
