This delightful children’s show captures the story of a young, African-American girl named Grace who boasts a colorful and vibrant imagination. In her play world, she becomes the characters: Anansi the Spider, Joan of Arc, Mowgli, Hiawatha. Her grandmother, Nana, believes that Grace can be whatever she wants to be. Grace is told by two of her classmates that she can't be Peter Pan in the school play because she is a girl and because she is Black. In the end, Grace shows us that she can indeed do anything she sets her mind to.
