As we reflect on Juneteenth and its legacy, BNS Productions presents two original African American stage readings of perseverance and love.
Reading #1. “The day of June 19th”: This story is about a slave who falls in love with a beautiful African princess. As he courts her, they both dream of freedom. The ancestors answer their prayers on June 19, 1865.
Reading #2. “Speakeasy”: Horse is a part of the great migration. He settles in Pennsylvania and falls for a tough owner of a Speakeasy.
These stage readings feature dance performances, historical references, and a unique look on the Black experience by Rory D. Sheriff.
