Narrator: History has a way of changing, depending upon who is telling it. Well, I invite you to take a journey with me glimpsing through the true history of Negroes, Blacks, African-Americans, or whatever classification you are using today. It is a journey of a race of valiant men and women who fought their way out of prejudicial degradation.

Somehow, in manís search of gold, we 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. We, like Harriet Tubman, chose to wade in the water, abandoning the path of slavery and move into our place of freedom....

"Wade in the Water" is one of the most informative Black History plays, giving a glimpse of African-Americans fight for the right to be seen as more than property, but humans. 

A great deal of research has gone into making this compilation of plays thorough, enlightening, and entertaining.
