A man in the distance, holding a lantern and walking through a line of trees while the sun sets. His reflection is seen in the river in the foreground. A silhouette of an African American man can be seen through the trees.

Liberty Live

In this new play based on true events in 1850s New Jersey, Peter has arrived at an abolitionist office seeking help from its director, William, an African American leader in the Underground Railroad. As the two men learn more about each other’s lives, they realize their vastly different pasts will lead them to a deeply connected future.

This program is made possible in part by a 2024 HEART (History Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of County Commissioners.
