Where Spirit Rides – Wednesday, March 2

Wednesday, March 2

4:30-5:30 pm

LCC Black Box Theatre – 168 Gannon Building

A one-woman performance created and performed by Lisa Biggs. Set in 1831 at a Quaker worship meeting. The ghost of a formerly enslaved Black woman possesses Abby Kelley, an Irish American farm girl, then rides her for the next 35 years to become one of the leading anti-slavery activists of her time. Weaving historical speeches with period song and dance, WHERE SPIRIT RIDES tells the haunting true story of two women — one living, one dead — who struggled to end slavery and won. Seating is limited!

Presented by LCC Women’s History and Black History month committees, and LCC Performing Arts
