ESCAPE TO FREEDOM

Enslaved black people once farmed the cotton fields that covered more than seven square miles of the Mordecai estate, the largest plantation in Wake County. They also worked in the home and cared for the family and the horses. The three surviving slave narratives from the period are unanimous; the plantation's laborers were not treated well. In this interactive environmental theater production from MOJOAA Performing Arts, audience members walk the grounds of Mordecai Historic Park, experiencing local plantation life through the eyes of its servants. Then they try to find a way to escape. —Byron Woods
