Experience history coming to life when Brenda Hollingsworth-Marley brings to life, Footsteps to Freedom: From Jim Crow to Civil Rights, in the Little Theatre.
This program explores the history of the Civil Rights Movement through the lives of two powerful women: Rosa Parks, the African American seamstress who refused to give up her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus; and Coretta Scott King, the widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Coretta was the phenomenal “force behind the throne” who never faltered in her dedication.
