Oh, Freedom! is currently playing at the Sacramento Theatre Company as part of their youth series. Focusing on the story of the Underground Railroad, the play’s ensemble narrates the early days of the slave trade and its devastating impact before turning to the secret organization of routes, safe houses and abolitionists who worked to help slaves escape the South. Featured are prominent figures who fought against slavery, including William Still, Jonathan Walker and Harriet Tubman, who helped guide more than 70 slaves to freedom by herself alone. It’s an important part of our country’s history and serves as a reminder that unity and collaboration are vital to ending injustice.
