Event Details

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom, a new musical filled with traditional and original Gospel and Freedom songs, tells the moving, true story of Lynda Blackmon Lowery, the youngest person to walk all the way from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, on the Voting Rights March in 1965. Jailed nine times before her 15th birthday, Lynda, and her friends and neighbors, fought alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to secure the right to vote for African Americans. Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast Club, High Art, Psych), adapted the award-winning memoir by Lynda Blackmon Lowery (Dial Press, 2016) for the stage. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom is directed by Fracaswell Hyman and the music director is Joshuah Brian Campbell,

There will be a Q&A with the cast directly following the show.

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom tells the true story of the sometimes brutal period of the Civil Rights history in the United States.  There is video of actual events and stylized dramatizations.  Some of this content might not be appropriate for children under 10.
