1830: Samuel and Daphney Oldham are the first free African-Americans to build their own home in Lexington, KY. Five years later, they disappear. Now, award winning artist Ain Gordon imagines the full story behind these bare facts as told from Daphney's perspective in a new one-woman play featuring Brooklyn’s own Michelle Hurst.
The creation of In this Place… was made possible, in part, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and LexArts.
