March 2, 2019
This original docu-play, developed by theREP, used New York State archival documents to bring to life the impact of the Fugitive Slave Act in the Capital Region. The story tells the intense moral struggles of several local residents, including former slave Solomon Northup and Harriet and Stephen Myers, who produced an anti-slavery newspaper and risked their freedom to be conductors on the Underground Railroad.
