Free Event: True Stories of ‘The Underground Railroad’ – February 11, 2012

Underground Railroad

True Stories of ‘The Underground Railroad’ will be celebrated at a dramatic reading for Black History Month to be held on Saturday, February 11 at 1 PM at Southside Hub of Production (SHoP), 5638 S. Woodlawn.

Written by Hyde Parker Osa Buchner, the Underground Railroad, tells the true stories of the heroic people who helped enslaved African Americans escape to freedom. Featured characters include Harriet Tubman, Thomas Garrett and Henry Box Brown. The parts will be read by Hyde Park residents Richard Buchner, Marcus-David Brown, Judith Heineman, Brian Phillips and Brenda and Rod Sawyer; and by South Sider Alma Washington.

We need to support this local playwright as she works to inspire and enlighten audiences with stories about the people “who helped in the struggle for freedom.” Be sure to put The Underground Railroad on your event list for Saturday.
