John Brown’s Truth, two more sundays to go

“Now, if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel, and unjust enactments—I submit; so let it be done!”

—John Brown’s last words to the Virginia court—and sung again in the trial scene of John Brown’s Truth musical—just before he was executed for “treason, and conspiring and advising with slaves and others to rebel, and murder in the first degree”

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience this musical production.  John Brown’s Truth will be presented Sunday 22 and Sunday 29 of April, @ 7:30 pm.  Tickets available online here
