Hailed as the most important narrative of its time depicting the life of a female slave, Harriet Jacobs’ true story begins when she is born enslaved in Edenton, North Carolina, and then continues through her escape, her status as a runaway fugitive in the North, and finally her path to freedom. Star of stage and screen, Cherita Armstrong brilliantly dramatizes this astonishing story, bringing the past to life in an incredible account of a mother’s love, strength, resilience, and survival against all odds. Written by Harriet Jacobs. Adapted and Directed by Wynn Handman. Tickets: www.dwtheatre.com • 2 South Pack Square • Asheville, NC • 828-257-4530
