In this theatrical performance, free and enslaved Black students like Isaac Bee, Molly, John, Mary Ashby, and their teacher Ann Wager share lessons learned at the Williamsburg Bray School and the various legacies of those lessons. Through multiple perspectives from the students and their teacher, guests will consider the varied ways in which freedom, education, and agency manifested for black children in 18th-century Williamsburg. The program follows scholars of the Bray School and their teacher from the opening of the school in 1760 to its closing in the late 18th century.
