Day of Tears

On March 2nd and 3rd of 1859, the largest sale of human beings in the history in the United States took place at a racetrack in Savannah, Georgia.

Using historic images and text, I guided the audience through the day, while professional and local young actors carried us through time with staged readings from the book "Day of Tears" by Julius Lester.

We had a total of 40 people in attendance, and every single one of them asked for more. They all filled out comment cards, and the books on the subject now have a hold list.

It was SO exciting to have such a diverse audience (age and ethnicity) in attendance.
