Actress Erica Hubbard comes to the stage as a young Lydia Broadnax. Lydia, an enslaved woman in the household of George Wythe, a signer of the Declaration, confronts her own feelings about the words “All men are created equal and endowed with the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” What promise does she feel that document makes to her—and the tens of thousands of people held in bondage at the time of the American Revolution?

Guest Artist Erica Hubbard

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we welcome actress Erica Hubbard to the stage as a young Lydia Broadnax. Erica has been lighting up the big and small screens with her contagious and enticing smile for the past seven years and can currently be seen as one of the leads of the hit BET series Let’s Stay Together, now in its second season. The show is produced by Queen Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment production company and is written and produced by Jacque Edmonds Cofer.

Q&A with Barbara Hamm Lee

At the conclusion of the performance, Barbara Hamm Lee, creative services officer of WHRO, will conduct a live Q&A session with the actors, asking each to reflect on the scene they just portrayed. Audience participation is encouraged.

The weekend also celebrates Women’s History Month.
