Through the age of 20, he experienced life-altering situations that propelled him to the route of freedom, subsequently becoming the most famous African American and abolitionist orator of the 19th century. Step back in time to the early 1830s and 1840s, and learn about his incredible early story and the impact he has had nationally and internationally. Tickets are $25/adult and $13/child.
