New play "The Wash" gets world debut in Atlanta: "How come I have never heard of this before?"

That single question changed Atlanta native Kelundra Smith’s life. And now, with her world-premiere play "The Wash," Smith is hoping nobody will need to ask it again.

"The Wash" tells the real-life story of the 1881 Atlanta washerwomen strike, during which Black laundresses led a strike for better wages in the weeks leading up to the International Cotton Exposition.

Balsamic Pork Tenderloin Marinade


  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1.5 to 2 pounds pork tenderloin

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, rosemary, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic.
