The Hurrah Players and Clear Vision Edutainment are teaming up to reboot the stage-play “Path to Freedom.” An original stage play written by Corey Staten, “Path…” traces the evolution of African-American culture to medieval West Africa, through slavery in America, into the Post Reconstruction Era, all the way to the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Travel through time with historical figures such as Mansa Musa of 14th Century Mali, 18th Century slave rebel Jimmy Kato, anti-lynching journalist Ida B. Wells, World War ll hero Doris Miller, and television producer and creator of Soul Train, Don Cornelius as history comes to life through music, dance, and colorful stories from African-American culture.
