While this movie is based on the first book the Delany sisters did together, certain parts of it - Sadie tricking her way into teaching at a school, and the sisters seeing themselves on Broadway - weren't revealed until Sadie published her own book "On My Own at 107" four years later.
The original Broadway production of "Having Our Say" by Emily Mann opened at the Booth Theater in New York on April 6, 1995, ran for 317 performances and was nominated for the 1995 Tony Award for the Best Play. Emily Mann also wrote the teleplay for this filmed production.
