A Road To Freedom Presentation

Brenda Hollingsworth-Marley, a professional storyteller/singer from Albuquerque, presented A Road to Freedom and channeled Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King. She used hats to re-create the person, as well as singing and other props. She interacted in character with students by having them help on stage, and she held a question and answer session at the end. The high school also attended the assembly at a different time with different age-appropriate content.
