EXTRA ORDINARY at Emanuel AME Church (Portsmouth)

June 3 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

This program is historical storytelling at its best.  Through story and song Master Storyteller Sheila Arnold shares the most extraordinary and death-defying escapes for freedom by the fugitive slaves, many recorded because of their connection with the Underground Railroad.   Ms. Sheila, as she is often called, accents these stories with audience participation. This one hour program will have you on the edge of your seat, and wondering ,”What would I do for freedom?”.  Appropriate for all ages. Sponsored in partnership with the Emanuel AME Church and the Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways Museum with the support of Virginia Humanities.
