One Noble Journey: A Box Marked Freedom

Saturday, February 15 at 2 p.m.

Documentary-theatre playwright and actor Mike Wiley portrays 20 characters in this one-man show based on the true story of Henry “Box” Brown. Henry was an African American born into slavery in 1816 Virginia. Henry’s story demonstrates that the cruelty of slavery was every bit as devastating to the heart as it could be on the body. One Noble Journey also recounts the daring and miraculous quest for freedom of Georgia slaves Elizabeth Craft and her husband William.
