Event description

Description

Take a trip back into the past with a creative production that sets the stage for a historical speech reenactment of Frederick Douglass. The audience is transported back through time to the days of plantation life. The characters that you meet on this journey reveal their hope for liberation as they wonder how Frederick Douglass is doing as a free man. This enhanced dramaturgical experience depicts the lives of the enslaved men, women, and children who were forced to work in the fields harvesting cotton from sun up to sun down. Under the whip of the overseer they were subjected to merciless abuse, horrible degradation, and unequivocal evil. Both educational and entertaining, this production is a succinct chronicle that, in the span of an hour, documents the growing abolitionist movement and the call for emancipation. This production is about educating children and adults about the history of African-Americans. Not only that, but it is a call to action for those that continue to sit and do nothing, and to let them know that it is time to take a stand by not only fighting for justice, but by educating others about history that affects our future and constantly shapes our present. This production will also give us an opportunity to give back to the community. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Martin Luther King Middle School in Richmond, VA, to the Nutrition Center of 31st Street Baptist Church in order to feed the homeless, and to the Scholarship Fund of 31st Street Baptist Church to contribute to higher learning. If you so choose, please pay it forward buy going to the donation section and donating a ticket for a child. Your support is greatly needed!
