This solo interpretation of a unique and powerful American voice illuminates the life and times of the most celebrated African American of the 19th century. Douglass is portrayed by Charles Everett Pace whose reenactment delves into the abolitionist’s struggles to earn freedom and the difficulties encountered with writing his famous novel. Celebrate Black History Month with a scholar and entertainer whose stories make history come alive. Pace’s research into the anthropology of performance, the experience of historical activists who overcome obstacles and seize opportunities, and his ability to visually communicate with an audience is sure to enthrall. Pace’s background in history, anthropology, and performance-based public diplomacy makes this a unique show. One not to be missed.
