SYNOPSIS: A musical tribute to Frederick Douglass. Douglass’ own words power the soaring new melodies and original script from Grammy Award-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon and Randolph-Wright. This daring and heart-stirring new work moves through Douglass’ life as a fierce abolitionist and distinguished orator featuring interactions with key figures including President Abraham Lincoln and his own wife, Anna Murray-Douglass, without whom his defiant escape from slavery would not have been possible.

Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright

Cast: Cornelius Smith Jr.
