Oh Freedom! The Story of the Underground RailroadA Play with music by Peter Manos
Directed by Saundra McClain

Based on historical events, Oh Freedom! tells the story of the greatest collaboration against racism in American history before the Civil Rights movement. Combining stories of the men and women who were active in the fight against slavery with songs of the period, it reminds us that it took the cooperation, conviction, and bravery of many people, both black and white, to help hundreds of enslaved people make their way to freedom. Due to serious subject matter, this production is not suitable for children under 10.
