Tea with Frederick Douglass and A Life in Three Dresses: The Story of Elizabeth Keckley

February 12, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$30

The Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion proudly celebrates Black History Month with a double feature of two powerful one-act plays written and directed by Shav’on Smith. Tea with Frederick Douglass finds him trying out his famous speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” while examining his own past. A Life in Three Dresses tells the story of Elizabeth Keckley, also born into slavery, whose brilliance saw her rise to the White House, becoming the dressmaker and confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln. Together, these plays will give you an inside look into the lives of two extraordinary Black Americans.
