Before Juneteenth and the Emancipation Proclamation, thousands of formerly enslaved men, women, and children gained freedom and sanctuary by escaping to Union camps in the South after Shepard Mallory, Frank Baker, and James Townsend secured their liberty at Fort Monroe. This performance tells the story of Americus Weston’s journey to freedom during the Civil War, developed to commemorate Juneteenth.
