Turning 15 on the Road To Freedom
In celebration of Black History Month, an electrifying first-hand account of the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery takes the stage at Catskill's Bridge Street Theatre on February 10, 11, and 12. Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom tells the moving, true story of one of the youngest participants, Lynda Blackmon, who struggled nonviolently alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. to help secure the right of African-Americans to vote. Jailed nine times before her fifteenth birthday, her stirring and inspiring tale lets audiences of all ages experience the courage it took to help change American history. Originally developed at Fiorello LaGuardia High School for Music, Art, and Performing Arts in NYC, this stage adaptation of Lynda Blackmon Lowery's award-winning book for young readers is directed by actress, author, and teacher Ally Sheedy (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, High Art, The Little Sister), and powerfully performed by 19 year-old actress, Damaras Obi.
