Pathway To Freedom is an exciting account of the struggles and heroism of the 1840's and 1850's along the "Underground Railroad" from North Carolina to Indiana. Both individuals and some of the organized religions fought slavery in the legislature and on the farms, while some, like Levi and Katie Coffin of Guilford County led volunteers and free slaves in clandestine efforts to help escaping slaves to freedom.
The play centers on George Vestal, son of a slave owning family, and how and why he became a worker for the "Underground Railroad." Events trace the actions of slave families in their hope of gaining freedom and dignity.
The rich music in the play is based upon the music of the period and enriches the emotions that flow during the play.
A story of conflict, of action, support of human dignity, and it urges us to work for what ought to be. It is a play about family courage. It helps to explain our past and shines a light to the future.
