This Saturday, February 13, a performance piece based on Lynda Blackmon Lowery's memoir, Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom, will be presented at 3 p.m. at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School, 182 Harry Howard Avenue. The memoir was adapted for performance by Ally Sheedy, who is also the director, and will be performed by Damaras Obi, one of Sheedy's acting students at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music, Art and Performing Arts in New York City. Lowery will be present and will speak after the performance. To learn more about the event and those involved in making it happen, see Jamie Larson's piece in Rural Intelligence: "History Becomes a Memoir, a Play, and a Call to Action."
A suggested donation of $10 for adults can be made at the door to benefit the Hudson Area Library.
