Living Voices, a New York based performance arts organization, returns to Morristown National Historical Park to present their live multi-media performance of Our Revolution.
Our Revolution is the story of Peter Freeman, a free black in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 1770s. When the colonial conflict with the British government reaches his town of Concord, Peter and his family find themselves at the heart of the battle. While Peter's father joins the patriot militia, his brother goes to sea and is stolen by privateers and sold South into slavery. And by the time the colonies declare their independence, Peter and his brother find themselves on opposite sides of a war, where they are each forced to face the question: whose liberty am I fighting for?
Walk in the footprints of a soldier in the Continental Army during the American Revolution as he struggles to find a place for himself during the birth of both a new country and a new people -the first generation of African-Americans in the United States of America.
