What begins as a class visit to the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall in Washington D.C., to see the famous statue of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, turns into a college student getting more than she bargained for as Bethune’s statue comes to life and transports them both back through time to 1884 and beyond.

Written by Richarda Abrams Directed by Kathleen Brant Music direction by Amina Claudine Myers
