Narrator: History has a way of changing, depending upon who is telling it. Well, I invite you to take a journey with me through the true history of slavery. It is a journey on the road to freedom. Somehow, in man’s search of gold, Africans became more valuable, causing men and women of varying countries, races, social, and cultural backgrounds to lay aside what they knew was humane and morally right and to justify what was done to a race of people as nothing more than a business transaction...

Hunted like animals, stripped of family, property, inheritance, and dignity, someway, we found strength to fight and rise out of the ashes of burnt homes, severed limbs, inhumane treatment, and shattered families. Our voice is lifted high that we shall overcome.

In this play we endeavor to briefly walk you through history of slavery, allowing you to have a glimpse of the struggle and reminding you of the cost­—freedom is not free. The Road to Freedom has been paved with the blood, pain, and anguish of our fore parents and those of other races who joined in and even sometimes helped to spearhead the fight.
